It is October 1940 and the air raids have begun over Thornley. The children of St. Gregory's school are well prepared for the attacks, after many rehearsals given by 'the Major' demonstrating how to put on a gas mask.
Sparky and his best friend, John Harrison, like to spend time with Sparky's uncle in the signal box at the train station. One day they overhear the guards discussing the two ammunition trains that have been hit, one in Coventry and the other in Liverpool. The next one will soon be passing through Thornley... will Thornley be a target? Is information being passed to the Germans? If so, who is doing it?
Air raid shelters to be built, robberies in the night and Janice Hogg's unwanted attentions are just some of the goings on in this dangerous and exciting adventure that the two boys embark upon.
