A new film based on the adventures of the classic sitcom characters of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard.

The story is set in 1944, when World War II is reaching its climax with the Allies poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army.

In a town on the southern coast of England, Walmington-on-Sea, morale amongst the ageing army reserve force, the Home Guard, is low. Their new mission - to patrol the Dover army base - is a chance to revive spirits and reputation... that is until glamorous journalist Rose Winters arrives to write about their exploits.

MI5 discover a radio signal sent direct to Berlin from Walmington-on-Sea, sparking rumours of a spy and - with the outcome of the war suddenly at stake - it falls to the veteran servicemen to step up to the plate.
