The show is about three men who do not go off to fight in the First World War and consequently become social outcasts in their village.
The trio finally have more men to talk to when the soldiers return to Rittle-on-Sea on leave. Cecil is having trouble reconnecting with his old chums, Bert’s sticky-fingered antics come back to bite him and George regrets giving advice to a private who wants to become a conscientious objector.
