- To William George Bunter, finding most definitely means keeping, and if he finds a postal order worth forty shillings he does his best to keep it, thinking only of the amount of tuck it would buy. Unfortunately the money belongs to Coker and the Famous Five feel they must return it. However the treatment of their Captain when he goes on his unselfish mission cannot be left unavenged and so when Coker , his arms full of tuck is ery upon by five juniors he drops it and less surprising that Bunter is on the spot to pick up a large box of chocolates.
- Bunter searches for a hiding place for his chocolates and what he finds there starts off his treasure hunt. For there is a latin written parchment that send Bunter to his grammar books. Long ago the monks who lived at Greyfriars hid their gold from King Henry VIII. If the gold were to be found, the piles of tuck it would pay for surpasses the dreams even of the fattest imagination of the Remove.
