- Sheldrake Grammar is a big day-school, and prominent among the members of Form Four is Milligan, R!
- Rex Milligan is a peaceable, easy-going sort of chap, as he modestly puts it, but whenever trouble's brewing he's in it up to the ears. During this exciting term, which begins with the sudden loss of the school playing fields, Milligan and his friend, Jigger make some interesting discoveries about switched number-plates and other shady business at the garage of the character responsible for it all.
- Not even a swamping in Staggers' new prototype land yacht can damp the enthusiasm of these two detectors of dirty dealings and in spite of old Birkie's tiresome delaying tactics and a nasty moment in a baker's van at the garage, Milligan and partner end the term on top.
