Μετάβαση στην πλοήγηση Πήδηση στην αναζήτηση
As [[World War II]] looms, Vin comes down from university and meets Carol Beldon ([[Teresa Wright]]), granddaughter of Lady Beldon ([[Dame May Whitty]]) from nearby Beldon Hall. Despite initial disagreements—mainly contrasting Vin's idealistic attitude to class differences with Carol's practical altruism—they fall in love. Vin proposes to Carol in front of his family at home, after his younger brother prods him to give a less romantic but more honest proposal. As the war comes closer to home, Vin feels he must "do his bit" and enlists in the [[Royal Air Force]], qualifying as a fighter pilot. He is posted to a base near to his parents' home and is able to signal his safe return from operations to his parents by cutting his engines briefly as he flies over the house. Together with other boat owners, Clem volunteers to take his motorboat to assist in the [[Dunkirk evacuation]].

She is startled to discover a wounded [[Nazi Germany|German]] pilot hiding in her garden and he holds her at gunpoint. Demanding food and a coat, the pilot aggressively asserts that the [[Third Reich]] will mercilessly overcome its enemies. She feeds him, calmly disarms him when he collapses, and then calls the police. Soon after, Clem returns home, exhausted, from Dunkirk.
 
Lady Beldon visits Kay to try and convince her to talk Vin out of marrying Carol on account of her granddaughter's comparative youth. Lady Beldon is unsuccessful and admits defeat when Kay reminds her that she, too, was young when she married her late husband. Lady Beldon concedes defeat and realizes that she would be foolish to try to stop the marriage. Vin and Carol are married; Carol has now also become Mrs Miniver, and they return from their honeymoon in [[Scotland]]. A key theme is that she knows he is likely to be killed in action, but the short love will fill her life. Later, Kay and her family take refuge in their [[Anderson shelter]] in the garden during an air raid, and attempt to keep their minds off the frightening bombing by reading ''[[Alice's Adventures in Wonderland]]'', which Clem refers to as a "lovely story" as they barely survive a bomb destroys parts of the house. They take the damage with nonchalance.
