Storyline

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.

Trivia

When Pike is talking about Angels with Dirty Faces (1938), he mistakenly names the stars as James Cagney and Spencer Tracy, rather than James Cagney and Pat O'Brien. Similarly, he later names Edward G. Robinson as starring in Scarface (1983). This is in keeping with Pike's immaturity and lack of knowledge. See more »
