A Canterbury Tale concerns three characters, a London shop girl, Alison Smith, a British Army Sergeant, Peter Gibbs, and an American Army Sergeant, Bob Johnson. The group arrive at a railway station on a Friday night in the small Kent town of "Chillingbourne" near Canterbury in the middle of World War Two. Alison is due to start work as a Land Girl, Peter has been stationed at a nearby Army Camp, and Bob got off at the wrong station. After getting directions from the acting Station Master, the trio head for the Town Hall, but before they arrive, Alison is attacked by an assailant dressed in a soldier's uniform who pours glue on her hair, before escaping. It's revealed that the glue attacks have already happened ten times to other women in the area. Alison asks Bob if he could spend the next few days in the village to help her solve the mystery. The next day, while riding a farm cart in the countryside, Alison again meets Peter during his patrol and he also joins the hunt for the Glue Man. The three enlist the help of the locals, including several young boys who love to play war games. By using their detective skills, the trio identify the culprit as the local magistrate, Thomas Colpeper who gives lectures at his Colpeper Institute to the soldiers stationed in the local district. Alison interviews all the Glue Man's victims to identify the dates and times of their attacks. Peter visits Colpeper at his home and borrows the Fire Guard roster listing the nights Colpeper was on duty in the Town Hall. Bob's boy commandos have a salvage drive which lets him discover receipts for gum used to make glue sold to Colpeper. The dates of the attacks correspond with Colpeper's night watches where he wore a Home Guard uniform kept in the Town Hall. On a short train journey to Canterbury on Monday morning, Colpeper joins them in their compartment. They confront him with their suspicions and he admits to being the Glue Man. Colpeper tells them that his motive was to prevent the local women from dating the soldiers who would have be distracted from attending his precious lectures. On arriving in Canterbury, with much of the city being devastated by Nazi bombing, Alison, Peter, and Bob have their wishes come true. All three visit the cathedral with much joy and thanksgiving.
