The platoon is to take part in an exercise to supposedly place a bomb in a windmill occupied by the Eastgate men. It is decided that, as the mill is by water, Frazer, in an ancient diving suit left him by a friend who died of the Dreaded Bends, will push Jones, disguised as a log, up to the mill, where Jones will discharge the 'bomb' and, thanks to clever decoy plans used to fool Square, Jones successfully makes it, only to get caught up on the windmill's sails.
The Walmington platoon is determined to win a Home Guard exercise, placing a fake bomb in the windmill which Mainwaring's even more arrogant colleague captain Square's Eastgate men defend. An elaborate plan is hastily devised and executed despite unsatisfactory testing. it involves Jones, dressed up as a log, pushed along the river by Frazer in an ancient diving suit, while the others execute similarly absurd diversions. Square also has a fifth column, the verger, but he only overheard part of the plan and is stupidly ignored as look-out.
