Both Feet In The Army!
Richard Wilson presents some military-themed sitcom clips
Former National Service Conscript - actor, Richard Wilson - takes a light hearted look at this taste of the army, experienced by so many young men after the war.
Both Feet In The Army! illustrates the trials and tribulations, the laughs and lunacies, of post-war National Service, through excerpts from sitcoms such as Get Some In and from films such as Carry On Sergeant and Privates Progress, to name just a few.
During the peak years of the 1950s, over a quarter of a million youngsters were serving at home or abroad in any one year - and for the millions who spent two years of their youth in the Army, Navy or Air Force in peace time, the experience was unforgettable Both Feet In The Army! captures those years for you.
