User Reviews

Anyone who's done national service will recognise this.

The cinema seemed to be full of them - young men who had been through national service. And how they recognised the archetypal characters portrayed on the screen. Time & time again dialogue was missed as the audience broke into uproarious laughter. The scene, in particular, where the 3 "squaddies" complete the necessary formalities on the day of enlistment is a comic gem. .I would like to say, "not to be missed" - but since I have never seen the film down to be on any T.V. channel, the chances of any of us catching it are not good.
