Operation Christmas Duff
A gap forms in the Thames embankment, and the Hon. Harold Bowles goes to Egypt to find a piece of statuary to plug it for free.
Much of this episode draws on the real story of Cleopatra's Needle, which did indeed have a terrible time being brought to London. The real reason why, however, was to commemorate the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte.
