Neville is about to be sacked for his lying but becomes a hero when he raises the alarm after seeing an unexploded bomb,unearthed by the diggers. He befriends Helmut Fischer,a German co-worker,and meets his family,the father having fought against Neville's father in the war. Oz's tactless remarks about the British winning the war land him in trouble and he is dismissed but the Germans actually go on strike in order for him to be reinstated. Liverpudlian Moxey joins the work-force and is welcomed with open arms because he is the only one of them who owns a darts board. Written by

Did You Know?
First appearance of Moxey, played by Christopher Fairbank. He only gets to stay in the hut because he has a dartboard. See more
In the news report about the unexploded bomb, Neville is interviewed. As it is a German news programme, his voice should have been dubbed into German, or subtitled. See more

Look man, I've seen blokes like you come and go all the time I've worked in Germany. They've never been out of the UK before. They've never eaten foreign food. Never drank foreign beer. Fish out of water without the wife or the mother to lend a guiding hand. After a week they've got pissed, lost their passports, and become ridiculously nationalistic for the country that can't even bloody employ them in the first place.
