Synopsis

Shot in the style of a home movie, the episode sees Del Boy, Rodney, and Uncle Albert, speaking to the troops from "a secret location in Southern England" (shortly revealed by Rodney to be High Wycombe). Their Trotter Van has been kitted out with a Union Jack, camouflage, and a machine gun, and Del suggests that it can be the alliance's secret weapon. Also present are many of the troops' wives, whom Del and Rodney assure the viewers they will take care of. The scene ends with an appreciative message to the troops.
