When Fuller claims that the lorry with the propeller blades overtook his car "doing the knots" he seems to be unaware that the very same lorry's speed is limited to only 20 mph as seen earlier by the weight and speed stenciled on its chassis. See more »

A police reservist (George Formby) is desperate to join the Flying Squad his bumbling prevents him untlil he can crack a gang of saboteurs who are seeking to tackle a new destroyer being built for the Royal Navy.
A good fun Formby vehicle with the star running round with plenty of energy in this often funny vehicle, though perhaps a little more slapsticky than most; the finale chase sequence is especially silly, almost spoiling an otherwise enjoyable comedy. This slapstick is probably to capitalise on the popular propaganda dream sequence in LET GEORGE DO IT (also 1940).
