Bumbo Bailey, a newly commissioned Ensign of the Household Brigade, considers his social life every bit as important as his military career. But his troubles begin when he falls in with the luscious Susie and her friend Jock, whose principal occupation is organising anti-war demonstrations. When they decide to protest outside Wellington Barracks, Bumbo's military career is soon in jeopardy!
