This adventure, targeted for children, follows the exploits of two children on the Rock of Gibraltar who save the island's ape population and British naval ships from saboteurs. One of the kids is a sea cadet whose visit to the island is his reward for rescuing a pilot from a burning plane. The other is island resident Banda, whose father is stationed there. After they discover the terrible plot of the saboteurs the children report it. The trouble is, no one believes them. The ingenious children somehow steal the plans from the scheming rebels and show them to the authorities who at last believe them and thwart the plots.
