announced that Britain will

make no more such weapons...

...he'll set it off and destroy

the seat of government".

It would wipe out half London!

If the PM makes no announcement...

...your professor will explode

the bomb at noon on Sunday next.

Today's Monday.

I can't believe it.

How big's a UR12?

The size of a portable typewriter.

He could easily

have it in his suitcase.


We've had no new vehicles since '45.

If we'd had them, we shouldn't

have had the men to maintain them I

Wait here, please.

Hello, Grant.

Good morning.

Any idea what's on?


Just got a message from the PM.

So did we.

When's the Army gonna get new stuff?

Cant afford it.

False teeth come first nowadays!

- Prime Minister, my information is...

- Leith can confirm it.

...that a UR12 exploded

on Westminster Bridge...

...will lay flat an area from

Rotherhithe to Notting Hill Gate.

That is so.

A hoax can now be ruled out. Willingdon

has disappeared and

presumably has a UR12.

Is he bluffing?

Young man wants a haircut.

I saw my old staff driver.

Know what he was up to? Towing

a damn trailer round a fairground!

A UR12 is actuated by a

timer. The explosion must

be set to occur within

15 minutes of starting it.

Could it explode prematurely?

Not accidentally. There are two

components, each useless on its own.

The timer can be set to operate

instantly at the touch of a trigger.

At least Willingdon can't

plant the thing and leave.

No. Find Willingdon

and you'll find the UR12 with him.

A description's gone out.

In an hour we start a comb-out.

I see. All right, Folland.

Right, sir.

Ask General Willoughby in. Oh, Lane?

Yes, sir?

You've worked with Willingdon

for years, haven't you?

Yes, sir.

What are his political interests?

Political interests?
