* Sergeant Arthur Wilson - diffident deputy bank manager, Captain in the Royal Artillery during World War I, [[UsefulNotes/ATouchofClassEthnicityandReligion of a higher social class than his superior]] as well as more experienced - alternatively verging on being a {{Cloud Cuckoo Lander}} at times. Was strongly implied to be having an affair with Pike's mother, with a suggestion that he might actually be the boy's father.

* Private Joe Walker - good-natured spiv who evaded conscription on dubious grounds. (Allergic to corned beef. Allegedly...) Usually to be found trying to sell people things.

(First appeared as a one-off press photographer character the year before he became a regular.) Almost no-one remembers him, he didn't stay long, and his departure gave a small boost to... * Private Sponge - farmer, generic guy, used when one of the main cast needed a supporting character to talk to. Later put in charge of the second half of the platoon, and given slightly more plot relevance. * William Hodges, Air Raid Warden - a grocer, Mainwaring's [[SitcomArchNemesis would-be nemesis]].
