Storyline

The platoon gets its turn at weekend training, for a bomb course. Captain Ashley-Jones convinces Mainwaring officers shouldn't sleep with the OR (other ranks) so he puts up blankets for him and sergeant Wilson, just after he forbade the others to voluntarily 'spoil him'. Next Ashley-Jones insists a captain can't join his men to the welfare cantine for beer, rationed to two pints for safety, which the men, especially Frazer, take for disloyalty. In the officers mess Mainwaring naively volunteers to be 'made a cardinal', a rather cruel drinking game... Written by KGF Vissers
