Synopsis[edit]

Frazer is promoted to Lance Corporal, and battles with Jones for further promotion.

When Captain Bailey informs Mainwaring that he can make up another lance corporal, Frazer is chosen. Jones and Frazer both try desperately to impress Mainwaring into making them a corporal, and Frazer issues many charge sheets. The episode ends with Frazer breaking into the office with a boat-hook in his biceps.
