Storyline

Arthur's Yorkshire contact Billy hires Ray to guard Young Sam, his racing pigeon, on the eve of a race whose prize money is worth ten thousand pounds. Due to Arthur's stupidity, Young Sam escapes, requiring Arthur and Ray to 'acquire' a substitute from a station platform. Although Young Sam ultimately returns, matters are complicated when Ray falls for Donna, daughter of a rival pigeon-fancier. Written by don @ minifie-1
