A sketch show based on military themes taking a comic slant on life for UK Forces and their families around the world.

In the pilot episode, sketches included Action Man trying to obtain a discharge on medical grounds, a landlady inspecting Camp Bastion as the troops prepared to move out, fighter pilots arguing over call signs, and Roger Moore being mistaken for the real James Bond.

Also weaved into the show are totally inappropriate messages from loved ones to the front line and very dodgy operational safety advice. Barry from Watford reminisces in Barry's Battles and the show takes a light-hearted dig at joint operations with friendly forces.
