When 18-year-old David Parker (Christopher Blake) with his grammar school background joins the Army as a regular soldier his hopes are high and he has a commission in mind.
The trouble is that this is 1950, the rest of his intake are National Servicemen, and officer selection is often a matter of having been to the right school and coming from the right background.
The three-part series from Yorkshire Television debuted on Sunday 13 January 1974 and followed Parker’s military fortunes.
