"Give him a flash, Agnes!"
7 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The last episode of Season 1.

The lads are dead chuffed to each get 36 hours leave. Leckie looks forward to going home to Scotland, Jakey is keen to renew his relationship with Edna, Matthew misses his harpsichord, Ken is just glad to be away from Marsh. But Perce won't let them go quietly; he insists Bruce clean his boots until he can see his face in them. Poor Leckie misses his train, and has to spend his leave in the barracks. Ken and Jakey get a lift from Matthew's sister 'Agnes' ( Jill Baker ). In an idea cribbed from the 'Sgt.Bilko' series ( 'Dobermann's Sister' ), the lads assume Agnes will be as unattractive as her brother, but when she appears she is a right glamour-puss. Ken is instantly smitten. The 36 hours fly past. When Agnes comes to pick them up, however, Jakey has incurred the ire of Teddy Boys 'Wally' ( Simon Callow ) and 'Tony' ( James Wardroper ) and to get their own back, have tinkered with her car. They break down in the middle of nowhere. If the lads don't get back to R.A.F Skelton by midnight, they will be officially listed as being A.W.O.L...

A good episode, although we don't actually see the lads on leave, which would I suppose be rather boring for the viewer. James Wardroper appeared in another Michael Mills-directed sitcom a few years later; the underrated 'Cowboys'. Alice is planning a trip to Paris, but Percy won't go. Rather oddly for an R.A.F. airman, he is afraid of flying.

Funniest moment - Marsh finding out that Alice has stayed in Paris to be with her cousin. "She hasn't got a cousin!", he bellows, as the truth dawns on him.
