- In normal circumstances Billy Bunter is not one of the most popular members of the Remove. Suddenly he becomes an object of affection because he was in possession of eight tickets for the steamer excursion to Boulogne on Founder's Day. The Famous Five were booked but there was someone else interested in one of the vacancies - Vernon Smith who had fancied his chances at the gaming - table with a system he had devised.
- At last the great day came and the steamer left from Pegg Bay at the appointed time, carrying among other passengers, Horace Coker of the Fifth with his bosom pals whose path crossed that of the Removites on more than one occasion: usually with hilarious results.
