Storyline

There is to be a parade through Walmington-on-Sea to commemorate Spitfire Week and, after watching a newsreel, the platoon decide it would be a splendid idea to have a mascot. Private Sponge farms sheep and the men try to catch his ram but it eludes them every time. Walker provides a goat but it is a skinny, pitiful creature which eats Mainwaring's five pound note. So there is no mascot for the parade, which turns into a race as the platoon, Hodges and his wardens, the verger and his Sea Scouts and the volunteer nurses all march faster and faster to be at the head of the procession until they all break into a run.

Trivia

When rescuing Pike from the boggy ground, Captain Mainwaring orders his men to remove their trousers but does not do so himself. This was due to a special clause which Arthur Lowe had put into his contract, in which he refused to be seen on-screen without trousers. See more »

Goofs

The flint cottages where the platoon march after rescuing Pike from the bog have been known as Percy Street in the series. However, at one point a sign bearing the real road name (Nether Row) is clearly visible in the background in a shot where we see the platoon march past the Verger and the ARP Warden. See more »
