Best Answer

In the movie, two men are discovered doing something in the latrine (army barracks washroom) at night. One man escapes through the window. There is a time gap between that scene and the next when the sergeant musters the men to ask the second man to come forward. No one does.

What were they doing? A homosexual act, which was at that time illegal and subject to a court marshal, and several years imprisonment.
