Storyline

1914 and in the village of Rittle-on-sea only three young men have not answered the call to fight - conscientious objector George, Cecil, patriotic but turned down because of his flat feet and stupid, selfish Bert, too dim to know there is a war on. With George facing dismissal and rejection by girlfriend Winky and Cecil's sister Agnes leading the women against the trio - especially after Bert has hit on a war widow and Cecil accidentally urinated on a memorial - they are ostracized in the shops and nobody cares that their tap-water is brown.
