Synopsis
The Black Angel takes to the skies in order to deal with the Nazi Air Force that has been attacking the city of London. But in Berlin, the Fuhrer is complimenting young German lads, known as the Scrap Korps, for their collection of airplane scrap to be used in building more planes. So the Angel decides to try and break the morale of the young kids in the Korps, by enlisting the aid of British children to do the same, as a way of dealing with the situation.
