Synopsis for "Bloody Good Show (Part IV)"
Britton and Major Gilhooley are reconnoitering to investigate for signs of German ground forces where the former was attacked by flak, but are without any luck. They are then chanced upon by German Messerschmitt 109s. Briton rams into a 109's wing and is force to bail out. He is almost being shot by a 109 under his parachute to be save by Gilhooley and is too shot down and makes a emergency landing. Upon landing, Britton rush to Gilhooley's plane and quickly takes the major out of the cockpit before it is destroyed by an 109. The two are stranded in the desert.
At L.G. 242, the 309 and the 107th receives word from L.G. 303 about Britton and Gilhooley's reconnaissance and are declared missing. Taff ask permission from Colonel Masters in conducting an immediate search with an observer, but is struck down by Captain Anderson who reasons that it is getting dark in less than an hour and they wouldn't have a chance in finding Britton and Gilhooley while flying blind until at first light.
As the sun sets, Britton and Gilhooley are trekking eastward to their L.G. Britton is curious as the Germans would normally have their ground forces to pick them up but didn't. He suspects that they are hiding something around in the desert and adds to the mystery with Britton's flak attack. As night engulfs them, Britton and Gilhooley walks blindly in the dark and find themselves stumbling into a German panzer. Britton and Gilhooley silently run up a sand dune and as the moon come out they see a large column of German armor and infantry encampment covered in desert camouflage. Britton realizes this German force has definite surprise for Allied forces and putting the Allies in a crucial position. Britton plans with Gilhooley in needing to communicate with their squadron, in which he intends in using the German encampment's radio.
