Synopsis:
A bawdy look at life in Britain's conscript army of the '50s, and how our 'virgin soldiers' spent two years defending King and country. Take Private Brigg (Hywel Bennett), for example, when he's not filling in forms or engaging the Malaysian bandits, he's out on manoeuvres with a Chinese dance-hall girl named Juicy Lucy (Tsai Chin). She is supposed to be a lady of easy virtue but, to Brigg's delight, she proves to be a lady of no virtue at all. Brigg also sets out on that most dangerous of all military operations - an affair with the Sergeant Major's daughter.
