Privates Episode 2 of 5

Corporal Barrowman drills Two Section on the parade ground. He is aghast that McIllvenny has permission to wear 'soft shoes' and that Private Hoy is unable to co-ordinate his arms and legs.

Lomax fakes taking the sedative that Nurse Connie gave him and much to her surprise suddenly starts to speak like Bette Davis. Jimmy tells Norah he has a plan. Keenan apologises to Connie for being strident about his pacifist views last time they met and asks Connie if they could talk, somewhere private.

Two Section undergoes bayonet training. It's a visceral process and most do it badly. It prompts Davies to wonder if he has what it takes to be a soldier.

Sergeant Butcher visits a woman at the Imperial Hotel in nearby Ravensea.
