Enjoyable episode.

This episode begins with Binghamton confiscating some war souvenirs as something like a spoil of war. But when Colonel Harrigan visits the Captain, he take the spoils of war for himself and even asks Binghamton where he got the items. It looks like Harrigan wants to send a few things back to the States.

Also the crew of the 73 hears about an area where German souvenirs are abundant. They get into the act when they sign Binghamton's name to borrow a truck to load-up items to resell to unsuspecting army men. But it just so happens the crew and Harrigan run into each other in the area. Harrigan is going to take all the souvenirs until a German patrol captures everyone involved. But with help from Ensign Parker and Fuji, they may have one chance to finally get some souvenirs.

This was actually an entertaining episode that was fun to watch from beginning to end. Perhaps not side splitting humor but there were a few funny lines that really made the show enjoyable. It was nice to see the writers let Yoshio Yoda get full involvement in a show instead of sitting at camp waiting for the crew to return. This was better episode than expected.
