A dim-witted soldier returns to London after being demobbed at the end of the Second World War only to find himself suspected of a murder

This typical seventies comedy caper has some railway scenes that were filmed on the Bluebell Railway, with interior scenes shot onboard Bulleid coaches. A couple of other shots were filmed at London Marylebone, with no trains visible, and three stock shots of 1950s Western Region expresses feature, two hauled by ‘Castle’ Class 4-6-0s (one of which is No.5060 Earl of Berkeley) and one by a ‘Hall’ Class 4-6-0. Not bad realism for images that supposedly represent trains at the end of the 1940s.
