While the businesslike butlet Clodson (Jack Douglas) consults his newspaper, the maids of Sir Harry's (Kenneth Connor) houshold are reminded to know their place by the authorative cook, Mrs Breeches (Joan Sims)

But despite the clouds of war over Europe, Clodson and Mre Breeches are more interested in racehorses. Lily (Carole Hawkins) the parlourmaid is the only person who expresses concerb at world affairs.

Old military hand Sir Harry, meanwhile, does sense trouble in Europe, and tries to contact the War Office by telephone, but his grasp of technology is pretty poor, and he ends up deciding to send them a postcard.

Sir Harry can't avoid all aspects of modernity, though. His flirty daughter Virginia (Sherrie Hewson) has joined the Suffragettes. She plans to prove her commitment to the cause by chaining her maid Teeney (Vivienne Johnson) to the railings of Buckingham Palace.

The men of the house are also causing problems - Sir Henry's son Willie (Andrew Ray) is reluctant to head off to the front line, while a new footman, the suspicious Klanger (Bernard Bresslaw) joins the domestic staff. Klanger convinces Sir Harry that he is not a German spy, though he sends most of his time photographing top-secret material, and sending carrier piegons to the Fatherland!

Sir Harry is put in charge of bootlaces for the troops, but is all too easily distracted by the arrival of Baroness Lotte Von Titsenhausen (Barbara Windsor), three years after she ran off with his old footman, Starkers (Bernard Bresslaw).[N 1]
