Clare is pulled alive from the sea and taken home to recover, her court case for trespass postponed. She is delirious and Richter hears her murmur that she killed the Luftwaffe pilot but he keeps quiet about it. Müller wants to organize a reception, a propaganda exercise inviting local worthies to meet him, but the other Germans know that the islanders' antipathy to their occupiers would mean that nobody turned up. It is left to Reinicke to tell him this. The Germans are mystified that meat is being stolen on a regular basis from their cold store. The culprit is reckless Captain Foster-Smythe, angry that his protests to the Nazis that the islanders are being deprived of food are unheeded, but he manages to elude them.
