Storyline

Mainwaring gives the platoon a lecture in communications but when a German plane crashes into the town's reservoir it becomes obvious that many of the men have no idea how to use a telephone and, when Mainwaring gets through to the main exchange to notify the incident, the operator is no help. Whilst a guards officer attempts to take command of the situation from Mainwaring, Walker saves the day by getting the reservoir manager to open the sluices, forcing the Germans to swim for it.

Goofs

"I've never heard you swear before, sir," says Wilson after Mainwaring bridles at the Germans' "bloody cheek." But he'd been shocked in the first season edition "The Showing Up of Corporal Jones" when the Captain referred to Major Regan as a "rotten bastard." See more »
