The Goons Hit Wales
In order to claim their back pay for finishing World War II so late, the Fourth Armoured Thunderboxes must transport the Japanese troops they have defeated and all their stores of nitroglycerine back to London.
The story was inspired by the 1953 French thriller The Wages of Fear (Le salaire de la peur) about two trucks full of nitroglycerine being transported to a South American oilfield.
This episode was adapated for Telegoons.
