Dad's Army, Series 4 Episode 12 of 13

Duration: 29 minutes

When the wardens' HQ is bombed, they have to share the church hall with the Home Guard, despite Captain Mainwaring's disapproval. The wardens are terribly disruptive and decide to start a fire since it is a bit drafty in the hall. Wilson suggests they put some salt on the fire. After it is lit the fire won't go out - causing even more mayhem.
