Storyline

Jack meets Margaret Carter-Brown, who, despite being the niece of Lewis Bishop's former managing director John Hartley, is a Socialist researching the plight of the unemployed on Tyneside. He takes her to see Danny Lockhart, who is struggling to keep his family after the shipyard's closure rendered him unemployed and has sold his war medal. Hartley learns that the Argentine navy want a warship building and asks Jack to use his American contacts to broker a deal that will reopen Lewis Bishop. The deal falls through but Jack is able to supply another order for an American millionaire and uses his advance to buy back Danny's medal, winning Margaret's admiration. Jack also learns that Billy has married and moved to London while his parents have moved to a wealthy area and now vote Conservative. Written by don @ minifie-1
