Trivia: When Gunner Shorthouse is speaking to Sergeant Major "Tiger" Bloomer in the barracks, Bloomer says to him, "Get it out, lovely boy."

Trivia: Carol Hawkins was originally offered the role of Bombardier Murray, but turned it down due to the excessive nudity in the film.
Trivia: Max Harris replaced Eric Rogers as the film's composer as Rogers refused to work on the film after being told that budget cuts would reduce the traditional 40 piece orchestra to a 20 piece orchestra. Rogers would however return to do the score for "Carry On Emmannuelle" (1978).
