Series 1, Episode 2 - A Stripe For Frazer

Dad's Army - The Lost Episodes. Image shows from L to R: Captain Mainwaring (Kevin McNally), Sergeant Wilson (Robert Bathurst), Lance Corporal Jones (Kevin Eldon), Private Frazer (David Hayman)
Told he can promote one of the men to Corporal, Mainwaring makes Frazer Lance-Corporal, and pits him against Jones in a contest to see who is worthy of the full rank - but the Scot quickly goes power mad, and has half the platoon up on a charge!

Further details

When he's told he can make a member of the platoon a Corporal, Captain Mainwaring instigates a competition between Frazer and Jones to see who deserves the promotion.

Both candidates do their best to impress him, particularly during a demonstration on how to face down a Nazi stormtrooper, but things go awry when a power-crazed Frazer charges the other men with court-martial offences.
