Storyline

Mainwaring is extremely annoyed that all the platoon - except Godfrey,who was too slow - have used up all their ammunition firing in vain at a low-flying German aeroplane. An inquiry is ordered - along with a new case of ammunition,which duly arrives. The captain in charge of the enquiry,which takes place in the church hall in competition with choir practice, feels it a waste of his time but talks the men through what happened.Jones says he gave the order to shoot. Mainwaring corrects him by saying 'Fire',which the platoon does,making a hole in the roof. Written by don @ minifie-1
