Dame Beatrice houses a collection of middle-aged "guests", plus Lily her maid.
To repay Dame Beatrice for giving her a job despite her criminal past, Lily presents her with a mink stole filched from the next flat.
The Brigadier deploys his 'troops' to return the fur. The whole campaign is so invigorating that they decide to retain this excitement in their lives by pinching furs and giving the proceeds to charities.
