I have very vague memories of this appearing on TV in the 1970's.

Previous reviews I've seen compare this to Dad's Army. WRONG!!!

In terms of quality this is right up there with Dads Army, but frankly there is more in common with "Ain't Half Hot Mum", with Tony Selby's part of "Corporal Marsh" being pound for pound as strong as Winsor Davies portrayal of "Sergeant Major Williams".

Though not quite as close to the knuckle as "Ain't Half Hot Mum", it still walks close to the edge in terms of Political incorrectness, but seems more gentle.

Background?
It is set in the 1950's where kids leaving school would have to do two years service in the armed forces. (It was called "National Service" and seemed to be aimed not so much at producing combatants, and more towards instilling discipline, respect for others, and responsibility/duty to society)

The world was a much bigger place back then, and without MTV and American cultural influences that would eventually homogenise the regional and class differences, accents and regional differences between people living just 30 miles apart could seem almost alien.

Young people typically pick on each other based on differences, sometimes aggressively. So by mixing Cockneys and Glaswegians, working and middle classes, and making them rely on each other to survive the bullying of a sadistic Corporal, would definitely teach them to realise what they had in common and direct their youthful energy more positively. (Makes me wonder how more violent society will get until we bring back National Service?)

Performance?
Tony Selby is just amazing!

Get Some In ! What a great series this was when originally shown on TV and I love it ! This, the 4th series, still shows the "recruits" being hounded by their buffoon "Instructor", Cpl Marsh, who never fails to make himself look the idiot after his continuous attempts to belittle his charges, while they win the day, each and every time.
Although it`s set in the 1950`s, a lot of the National Service RAF`s training methods, and certainly the humour, are uncannily similar to today`s modern RAF with regards to the young lads trying to get the job done without drawing the wrath of their corporal, while becoming a close-knit team at the same time.
Yes, a great series and highly reccomended to anyone interested in the funnier side of service life ( Trying to get anything from stores; training manouveres and general barrack life ). You`ll love it so get buying, you `orrible little airmen !!

This series is not quite up to the standard of the first 3 series, but enjoyable none-the-less.

Will appeal to all those who went through National Service in the RAF (which I why I bought the series in the first place).

Tony Selby, who plays Corporal Marsh throughout the five series, is excellent in his portrayal of a two-faced bully; a DI (drill instructor) in the start of the series and later as just a lying, cheating, 'orrible corporal in later episodes.

Highly enjoyable and nostalgic sitcom.
