| What a waste of a talented cast
This film proves that the vein of humour of army comedies had been mined to exhaustion by the time this film was released.There is Harry H Corbett doing an audition for the role of Steptoe which would typecast him for life.Stanley Baxter who would find stardom on TV with his Hollywood parodies,sadly underused here.The Barnet who attained stardom on in On The Buses.Bill Fraser who had also become a TV star playing a Sergeant in the army game.Yet despite all of this and the track record of Launder and Gilliat this film is virtually a laugh free zone.The story is full of tired clichés with Corbetts role proving to be more irritating than anything else.
