Storyline

When the War Office plans a review of both Home Gurd and ARP in order to decide which less fitter soldiers of the first and less fitt of the second should be transferred to the other corps, the last thing either's men want, all tricks go to look younger viz. older. So after a field exercise proves the platoon's fitness is at best questionable, Meanwearing tries a terrible toupee, Wilson wears a corset, Frazer and Walker earn well from 'beautician' uses of frankly unsuitable substances. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Mainwaring: I think we're going to have to split this platoon into two halves, you know. One half for those who are fit and strong, and the other half for those who are not up to battle standards.
Wilson: Yes, well, I tried that once, sir. It looked rather untidy.
Mainwaring: How d'you mean, "untidy"?
Wilson: Well, there were two in one half, and twenty-one in the other.
