It's 1940 and England is under heavy bombardment, but the crew seem more interested in each other than the enemy planes above.

Rubbish. Along with Carry on Emmanuelle this is the worst of the series. I've got a lot of time for these films, but this was inexcusable. By this time (1976) the joke was no longer funny and the juice had run dry, as Sid James might have put it.
Only two of the Carry On regulars are in this and even they look bored. The jokes are staid and formulaic, delivered with the speed and panache of a postman. The budget for the film appeared to be £2.50.
Even Windsor Davies' Sergeant's bellowing couldn't save this.
