Series 1, Episode 2 - Pigeon Post

Messenger pigeons are sent for when the Captain and the Colonel need new uniforms; the only way to get them without arousing too much suspicion is to put an order in at Saville Row!

Further details

Fearful of being caught in the German uniforms and being shot as spies, the British airmen burn those uniforms. This reduces Colonel von Strom and Captain Goering to dressing as French onion-sellers.
