Fairly Secret Army is a British sitcom which ran to thirteen episodes over two series between 1984 and 1986.
Though not a direct spin-off from The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, the lead character, Major Harry Truscott, was very similar to Geoffrey Palmer’s character of Jimmy in that series, and the scripts were written by Reginald Perrin’s creator and writer David Nobbs.
Throttle leaves a truck full of explosives in front of the house and it explodes. Harry suffers a concussion and loses his memory. He does not recognize anyone. Meanwhile, a mysterious stranger wants to employ the army to catch a Marxist named Cobra. Beamish tells Smith they have almost 500 soldiers so Smith lets them use an abandoned army base. Harry’s memory returns and he takes the lead on the operation.
