In 1941 the War office decides to test an experimental invention for delivering explosives. For secrecy the test is done on the coast, using three local Home Guard platoons. Mainwaring's vanity is used to make him volunteer blindly for 'special duties', which turn out to be the dirty work. However the weapon gets away, following Frank's illegal home-made radio, and only the bumbling bunch is in a position to stop it blowing up all Walmington on Sea. Written by
