Storyline

Captain Mainwaring's reservations to accept the 'non-combatant' role of umpire in maneuver exercises (as deputy for the Home Guard colonel) quickly disappear when he learns the job comes with a non-assigned staff car. His platoon might be allowed to keep this car, but he makes the mistake of bragging in advance it would be some sort of limousine, so the less grand model gets him generally laughed at. Next Jones' remarks about military car seating etiquette starts an unmusical dance of chairs in it. Pike's eagerness to be allowed in it as runner and general boyish pride are irresponsibly stirred by warden Hodges's niece Sylvia, a regular army driver and the only girl to look at him in times, who besots him to go to the pictures and makes him take the car, ignoring Jones didn't put the petrol in.
