Storyline

The platoon is to guard a prisoner of war camp housing Italian soldiers and Mainwaring is suspicious because Walker seems rather too friendly with them. However Walker explains that he uses them as cheap labour to mend radios for his customers and they go backwards and forwards in and out of the camp via a tunnel which they have dug beneath the stove. When an inspection is called for and only half the prisoners are available Jones,who is doing the head count,makes them go round twice but the plan is rumbled when the missing half turns up.

Godfrey: I speak a little, sir.
Godfrey: [to the Italian POW] Vostro piccolo mano e ghiacciato. Permesso e caldo ancora a vita.
[the P.O.W. looks shocked]
Mainwaring: What did you say to him, Godfrey?
Godfrey: Your tiny hands are frozen.
Mainwaring: What on earth did you say that for?
Godfrey: It's the only Italian I know, sir - you see, I'm a very keen opera fan.
