Storyline

The platoon gets its turn at weekend training, for a bomb course. Captain Square convinces Mainwaring that 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 Square insists a captain can't join his men in the canteen for beer, rationed to two pints for safety, which the men, especially Frazer, take for disloyalty. In the Officer's Mess Mainwaring naively volunteers to be 'made a cardinal', a rather cruel drinking game... Written by KGF Vissers
