Sgt. Wilson's Little Secret is an episode in the British comedy series Dad's Army. It was originally transmitted on Saturday 22 March 1969.

Synopsis[edit]

When Mrs Pike mentions having a child around the house again, Wilson gets the wrong idea, and is forced to marry Mrs Pike.

Plot[edit]

When Mrs Pike plans to take in an evacuee, Wilson misunderstands and thinks that she is pregnant. Mainwaring orders him to marry her, and just as the preparations are under way, Mrs Pike leads in a 10-year-old Cockney evacuee also named Arthur. The wedding doesn't take place.

Notes[edit]

This episode was previously the only surviving episode of the second series for almost 30 years, until 2001 when two episodes in the same series Operation Kilt and The Battle of Godfrey's Cottage were discovered.
