I haven't been out much at night myself.

I hear the bombers overhead every night.

They pass over my farm on their way to London.

It's a dread sound.

Yes, it is.

[ Train Whistle Blowing ]

- Would you like some cake?

- Cake?

Yes. I won it

back there at the fte.

You might as well share it with me.

It's a long way to a London restaurant.

Well, if you're going to have some--

Here you are.

Ah. Feel how light it is.

Made with eggs.

You'd think it was made with gold,

the way they wanted to hang on to it.

[ Airplanes Passing Overhead ]

I hear them now.

- What?

- The Nazis.

[ Airplane Engines Grow Louder ]

[ Explosions ]

They must be trying for the Blackmoor Factory.

[ Explosions Continue ]

[ Loud Explosion ]

Some low buildings about a mile.

That's it.

It's a munitions plant.

[ Bombs Whistling ]

[ Bombing Noises Fade ]

[ Door Creaking ]

Excuse me. There didn't seem

to be anyone here.

- What do you want?

- I'm looking for Mr. Rennit.

I'm Mr. Rennit. You should

have made an appointment.

Evidently you don't want clients.

Good morning.

Now, now, now, now.

You don't want to lose your temper.

I'm a busy man.

There are ways of doing things.

Take a chair, and we'll both have a drink.

- Not a bad idea.

- It's an excellent idea.

These raids-- bad for the nerves.

One must have a little something.

One gets rattled.

You'll excuse a teacup?

I've never objected to stimulants...

as stimulants.

- Your health.

- I may need it.

Now, to business.

- Your name?

- Stephen Neale.


Have you a pencil?

Thank you.

How did you happen to come to me?

Because I don't like my hotel room being

ransacked while I'm out at breakfast.

I don't like being robbed on trains or shot at.

Mr. Neale...

this is a respectable business with a tradition.
