However, life is about to change. Albert discovers the name Montgomery inside the boots and decides that they must have once belonged to the famous army general Montgomery. Of course he thinks that they must therefore be very valuable and determines to take them and the unsuspecting Clive to Sotheby’s Auction House in the hope of making his fortune. Thus begins Clive’s first adventure with lots more to follow.
