The recruits of Two Section hit the parade ground, Corporal is Barrowman appalled that Private McIlvenny is allowed to wear soft shoes and by the lack of coordination of nervous, gangling Private Hoy, though the latter proves to be frighteningly ferocious at bayonet training. Private Davies, however, doubts his own ability to kill. Keenan asks Connie on a date, whilst Lomax, only pretending to take the sedative Connie gives him, starts talking like Bette Davis. Butcher is sure he is faking madness to be discharged and tells him. But Butcher has his own guilty secret as he is having an affair with Gulliver's wife Audrey. Hobbs returns to the camp having declined to flee to America with Norah.
