Captain Mainwaring is told that he can promote one of the privates in the platoon to lance-corporal and he chooses Frazer as being the most efficient. Unfortunately this leads to a bitter rivalry between Frazer - who keeps dishing out charge sheets and becomes unpopular - and Jones, culminating in a fight between the pair of them, and ultimately Mainwaring has to return Frazer to the ranks.

and 'David Croft' thought it would be less democratic and therefore more in keeping with the character. See more
