Savage helps liberate Harrods.
FIRSTS & LASTS
He barges the convicts' dinghy in his DUKW and shouts to the Harrods crowd for his shotgun. He kills a convict planning to throw a grenade at him, who then drops it and it explodes. Savage drives the DUKW through Harrods' window and takes refuge inside. After dark he leads an escape attempt with the Harrods customers and Bamber rowing. An underwater flare rigged by the convicts announces them and Savage fires up the engine and flees as the convicts give chase in their power boats.
