Storyline

It's Mainwaring's platoon's turn for a weekend of guerrilla warfare training at a rural facility. Thanks to train delay and the captain's disastrous sense of direction, they arrive late for dinner and sleep through breakfast. They do rather badly at survival course, but Mainwaring's determined to redeem their honor by attempting a challenge nobody ever pulled off: capturing the officer's HQ. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Goofs

The train station the Home Guard departs to has rusted tracks, indicating that a train hasn't run on those tracks for years. It's especially noticeable when the troop marches down the ramp and off the platform. See more »
