Whilst Mainwaring is in hospital Sergeant Wilson is in charge. Following the speedy departure of Walker back to London, leaving only a note behind, Wilson decides to make up the platoon's numbers by allowing the vicar and the verger to join. Needless to say both of them are hopeless and the verger causes trouble by hitting a cheeky young lad who turns out to be Hodges' nephew. These new recruits are not in the Home Guard for very long.
