Carry On England is the 28th Carry On film. It was released in 1976.
An experimental mixed sex anti-aircraft battery in wartime is enjoying making love not war! However, the arrival of the new Captain S. Melly brings an end to their cosy life and causes terror in the ranks.
This film was a massive failure at the box office and was withdrawn from some cinemas after just three days of showing. Many critics cited its lack of "main" stars (relying mostly on secondary Carry On performers) and the move from saucy to out-and-out explicitness as its failure.
