Sunday 25th August at 8pm
Britain is facing invasion by Hitler and his Nazi hordes - and the men of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard are facing a crisis of their own. Private Walker, source of their supplies of whisky, cigarettes and other essential black market goods, has been called up to the army. Captain Mainwaring decides to use all his standing as an officer and a bank manager to have Walker excused from military service. Meanwhile, Jones and co try to ensure that Walker fails his army medical.

When he's told he can make a member of the platoon a Corporal, Captain Mainwaring instigates a competition between Frazer and Jones to see who deserves the promotion.

Tuesday 27th August at 8pm
Tipped off by Frazer and Godfrey, Captain Mainwaring and Sergeant Wilson investigate a house from where they believe someone may have been signalling to enemy aircraft. They take the suspect back to the church hall, but chaos ensues when an incendiary bomb comes through the roof and the platoon desperately battles the blaze.
