Attempting to steal meat from a well to do man, who catches and chases them near the front of a military recruiting station. When the boys desperately ask for a job, he tells them to go into a nearby building and go to room 310. They sign up, but it turns out the whole time it was the army, and they're under their own sergeant's command. They are given the task of training on a big gun at a naval base, and after screwing up too many times, accidentally fire on the Admiral's flagship. The sergeant then blasts them away by firing a cannon at them.
