Synopsis for "Bloody Good Show, Conclusion"
Britton and Gilhooley infiltrate the German encampment and making radio contact to Landing Ground 242 and warning them about the German armor. The 309 and the 107th Squadrons scramble for flight. Gilhooley stumbles upon an awaken German soldier and kills him, alerting the Germans. Britton and Gilhooley pack some heavy weapons and a radio before escaping to the sand dunes. By morning, the Germans are preparing to pull themselves out as Britton and Gilhooley observes them under a camouflage tarp.
Britton contact the 309 and the 107th and direct them to the encampment. The squadrons proceed with their attack. But soon they are inflicted with heavy casualties from German anti-air batteries and planes, in which Flight-Lieutenants Taff, Patch, and Captain Anderson are killed. As the situation turns dire for the Allied planes, Britton consider radioing them to call off the attack but is refuse by Gilhooley who recalls what Britton told to him as this is what it means to lead and tells the squadrons to stay and fight. At the right moment Terry Harding's tank-busting squadron and along with more RAF forces have finally arrive and proceed to decimate the Germans.
After the end of the battle, Britton and Gilhooley sadly reflects on the near-loss of their squadrons in which the former recommends to Gilhooley of reforming the 107th. Gilhooley then ask Britton of what would he have done if the inter-Allied cooperation had been a complete failure? Britton honestly answer that he hadn't the slightest idea, as it never occurred to him.
