Albert Jones and Captain Buckingham of Action Force are nearby when they hear the explosion and gunfire. They charge off to investigate. Once they arrive at the empty battlefield, they are instantly trapped by a net and then shot with knock out darts. Hours later, they are tied to tree right next to Major Bludd, who is also tied up.
