Winston Churchill is to visit Walmington-on-Sea and there is rivalry between Mainwaring's outfit and the Eastgate platoon as to which of them will supply the guard of honour for him. The answer is simple - the unit which wins a shooting contest. Since Mainwaring's men are pretty hopeless salvation seems to lie in Laura La Plaz, a stage sharp-shooter of Walker's acquaintance, who has to be disguised as a man to take part. Fortunately Frazer comes to the platoon's aid, being a crack shot who wins the contest.- Written by don @ minifie-1
Mainwaring swells with pride when told seniority earns his platoon being the honor guard during PM Winston Churchill's visit to inspect the coastal defenses. Alas, their awful performance at the target practice range in front of major Regan questions their suitability. HQ grants them one chance, a champion trios contest against the Eastgate platoon. Short of crack-shots, Walker 'recruits' Laura La Plaz, a vaudeville's South American sharp-shooter for the occasion. The contest provides some surprises.- Written by KGF Vissers
