Reluctant Heroes

By Colin Morris

A deferred public schoolboy, a deferred married man from Lancashire and a cockney lad all report to the army for National Service. This lively comedy deals with this ill-assorted bunch of conscripts who get themselves in and out of all sorts of adventures. Great barrack-room humour in a hilarious caricature of military life.
