It's the Second World War and Norman Pitkin is vitally interested in helping the war effort. A road mender by profession, he and his colleague Mr Grimsdale are recruited into the army and posted to France. From there it is not long before he finds he has unwittingly slipped behind enemy lines.
Picked up by the Resistance, Norman finds himself spearheading a mission to rescue British prisoners from German headquarters. Hilarious heroics follow as he takes on the German army practically single-handed. When it comes to raising laughs, Norman proves that no-one has more fire-power!
