I'll now assign you to your duties. Revely at five, you dress quickly, make up your bunks and get ready for inspection. Inspection until seven. Ten minutes for breakfast. You drill until one and march until four.
What about lunch?
You'll have that while marching. You have inspection until six. Fifteen minutes for mess. Kitchen duties until ten. Inspection until eleven. Then, taps. That is all.
If we have to do all that, you won't have time to forget.

Oliver is in love with Georgette (Jean Parker), but his heart breaks when he finds out that Georgette has someone other.That other is Francois (Reginald Gardiner), who is Georgette's husband.So Stanley and Oliver join the Foreign Legion to forget Georgette.There is also Francois at the Foreign Legion.The boys have many adventures there, like going to jail and escaping from there.And it is hilarious to watch the boys flying an airplane at the end.The Flying Deuces from 1939 is a very funny Laurel and Hardy comedy and I'm sure it's not a disappointment for any Laurel and Hardy fans.
