imdb.com has loads of info (and unlike me can spell Sergeant!)...

It was the first film in the "Carry On..." series. A further thirty were produced until 1992. Carry on Sergeant was so early it was in black and white.

PS - The film's plot was that a bunch of new recruits are called up for national service...their Sergeant lays a £50 bet with the other sergeants that HIS last squad before he retires from the army will be the champion squad that year...
