Major Charles Carrington, who won the VC in World War II, is arrested for embezzling £125 from his units safe. Other charges include leaving the base and entertaining a female officer in his room, which were both forbidden by base commander Colonel Henniker. Appearing in his own defence, Carrington argues that he took the money openly because of all the back pay owed to him. He faces the dilemma of defending himself without compromising the reputation of his wife or the honour of his alleged female companion.
