Bertram Oliphant West (also known as Bo West) wants to clear his unjustly smeared reputation. He joins the Foreign Legion, with Simpson his manservant in tow. But the fort they get posted to is full of eccentric legionnaires, and there is trouble brewing with the locals too. Unbeknown to Bo, his lady love has followed him in disguise... —Simon N.

Not bad, others are much better
Lesser Carry On which welcomes a guest star in the form of Phil Silvers. none other than Sergeant Bilko himself. Silvers, in his only Carry On, makes the most of a pretty disapointing script and the gang[Williams, Dale, Butterworth, Sims] are nearly completly eclipsed by the US star. Not a bad entry to the series, but one that goes way over the top and doesn't make the most of the stalwarts.
