Storyline

As part of Walmington's patriotic effort to finance a Spitfire, the platoon practices Morris (spring fertility) dancing. It's sissy to Scotsman Frazer's taste, except wielding the whiffling stick like a club, which upsets Jones. His nerves suffer because his sweetheart, lively widow Mrs. Fox, now accepts attention from old town clerk Gordon. At Jones' request the captain is going to talk to her. Alas that starts new suspicions. Things worsen when Fox auditions for the part of Lady Godiva, in fleshings, which stirs jealousy from the platoon's ladies. Written by KGF Vissers

Not a great episode
10 May 2008 | by (Camden Town, London, England) – See all my reviews

Rather more of the townswomen of Walmington-on-Sea in this episode but it's not one of the best.

A few good lines and some funny scenes, though, as the village goes 'en fête' in order to raise money towards the building of a Spitfire. Fundraising, whether real, or through investment in National Savings, helped villages and towns in the UK to 'connect' with the war effort by 'sponsoring', for example, a new aircraft or warship.

Captain Mainwaring tries to be a good 'divisional officer' and help out Corporal Jones but his choice of the café for a meeting is a mistake. The village gossip is ahead of him.

Elizabeth Mainwaring, his demanding wife, 'features' more than usual in this episode but one still never sees her!
