Storyline

Mainwaring scolds sergeant Wilson for his 'unmanly general appearance' because HQ is considering to upgrade his platoon to company, which could get them promoted. So he eagerly sets about planning a recruiting campaign to triple their manpower. The men decide on a poster, sausages on the proud 'macho' model: Lance Corporal Jones. As photographer Bluett is even older, posing proves a delicate business. However the overworked printer does worse, mixing Jones's mugshot up with one for an escaped POW. Mainwaring's arrogant approach to reclaim his man makes things much worse still. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The opening scene is far from seamless with glances off set and a fluffed line (about the letter opener) by Wilson. It all suggest a great deal of fun and retakes in the recording. See more »
