Despite grim reports on the wireless and rationing hitting hard, Lily Collins and her fellow shop girls from Marlow's department store are determined to put out the bunting for a family party. But Beryl's husband Les returns from North Africa a changed man, and Gladys worries for her own fiance's safety.
