Storyline

The platoon finally got a fast-repeating gun, so Frank is obsessed to hold the 'Chicago piano' he is familiar with from gangster movies. The captain considers Mr. Godfrey mad for asking for three days off, until he finds out it's to help with a former lover's 100 acres wheat harvest. Unfortunately Jones is the only one who has a clue how the threshing machine works, so while Joe frolics with three useless farm girls the hilarious bumbling takes its toll, not in the least from ever over-enthusiastic Jones, who gets 'exposed' Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Corporal Jones explains to Captain Mainwairing that just before the Boer War, Godfrey was a "dandy young buck of twenty summers." This means that Godfrey was born in 1879, which makes him in his early sixties during the events depicted here. Godfrey mentions that his sister is three years younger than he is, making her about sixty. See more »
