The Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard platoon deal with a visiting female journalist and a German spy as World War II draws to its conclusion.
Frank Williams (Reverend Timothy Farthing - Vicar) was due to appear in more scenes. He was deleted from the sequence where a paranoid Captain Mainwaring (Toby Jones) sees residents in Nazi uniforms.

There are outtakes and bloopers during the credits.
