* The battalion football team, defeating [[spoiler: the Royal Navy.]]
* Captain Einstein getting [=McAuslan=] acquitted of the charge of disobedience. CourtroomAntics at its finest.
* Captain Errol, bluffing a mob into dispersion.
* Aunt Alison, working her will on mere men. Also, the Gordon widow in the prequel short-short to her story.
* Wee Wullie, TheDeterminator.
* How [=McAuslan=] puts out the lamp at the night exercise. He pulls off something worthy of [[VideoGame/SplinterCell Sam Fisher]], ''entirely without intending to do so''.
