While chasing after Benny, Doyle knocks over some paint and gets into trouble. Trisha Yates' stripy socks earn her a detention. Doyle's eyes light up when he sees valuable flintlocks on loan to the school: he and his friend grab one of them, brushing past Tucker as they escape. With Form One Alpha under suspicion the head suspends the impending school festival unless the valuable object is returned. Tucker tells Doyle he knows it was him, but Doyle won't admit the truth - Trisha overhears and gets Mary and Ann involved, but the girls aren't entirely sure Tucker is trustworthy. Doyle is sent to Coventry: it's made clear that no-one wants to know him, and before long he's fighting Tucker. After a week, it's clear more action is needed - it's suggested that an amnesty is set up, allowing an anonymous return of the pistol. Ann tells Mr. Mitchell and the headmaster agrees. In the toilets, Tucker's mates fight with Doyle's gang to force Doyle to do the honourable thing. The next day, Doyle ... Written by Geffers
