Del and his consortium

Del puts together a consortium to purchase the gold chains from Arnie. In what seems a twist of fate, Arnie has a buyer for the gold chains after he has sold them to Del and his consortium.

Arnie offers to meet his buyer and sell the chains on behalf of Del and his consortium. The meeting takes place in the restaurant shown below. With Del and Boycie sitting at the back of the restaurant, and with Trigger, Mike, Rodney and Uncle Albert parked on the street outside.

The restaurant used is no longer in business, however the location is easily identifiable today. Currently it is occupied by London Host Familes Ltd, located on The Grove, Ealing.

During the meeting Arnie fakes a heart attack and it soon becomes clear that Arnie is not an ill man, but a conman.
