An escaped shark menacing the waters is a perpetual nuisance to Ollie as he prepares for their watery grave. The suicide attempt is thwarted when a gendarme named Francois (Gardner) tells them to enlist in the French Foreign Legion to forget all about his lost love. Coincidentally, Francois is married to Georgette and is an officer in the Legion. The boys have no idea what they are in for and hilarity ensues as they bungle their way through the rigors of military service.
