Storyline

During a nightly patrol in terrible weather the platoon runs out of rationed petrol for Jones's van, so they decide to spend the night in an at first sight abandoned house. There Pike, who got drenched, must undress and put on a heraldic garment and, after an accidental fire complicates the hilarious sleeping arrangements all wet again, a bear rug. Frazer's ghost stories seem to come to life with footsteps once everybody is asleep, but it's just captain Cadbury, a military dog school administrator who lives here with the hounds in training. In the morning friendly Cadbury walks the men back, but is no use when the bloodthirsty half-trained canines get loose. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

It is quite apparent that James Beck only features in the exterior location filmwork. This was shot before he was taken (ultimately fatally) ill, hence his absence from the interiors videotaped in the studio at a later date. See more »
