Storyline

The company arrive back in England and grope their way through the fog to Customs where Ashford is almost arrested and the demobilization centre, where they are dismayed by the lack of choice for their civilian suits. Overall they find that, despite their being away on service, nobody respects them. However it still feels good to be a private citizen, and they all have homes to go to - except Williams, who applied to be a prison warder but was turned down as being too old. Parkin displays rare insight in being the only man to pick up on this and suggests the sergeant major moves in with him. The offer is gratefully accepted. Written by don @ minifie-1

A fitting end to a classic series.
27 November 2018 | by seivadchSee all my reviews

As Croft and Perry had done with Dads Army. They decided to end this series definitively, as they would again in Hi De Hi. Both apparently were in concert parties during WW2 and then went on to work in British holiday camps.

That's why this and the last Hi De Hi work so well, for all the preceding foolery, the ending is moving and true.

That's one of British comedies greatest assets, knowing when to stop.
