Wasn't Benton the Brig, at the beginning of The Five Doctors when Two showed up and met up with Brig Lethbridge-Stewart, just prior to being Time Scooped?
No, that was Colonel Crichton (played by the actor who'd previously been Lt Carstairs in The War Games, and a scientist who Benton - well, UNIT in general - failed to protect from the Axons in Claws of Axos, by coincidence). ISTR that in Terrance Dicks's script Benton was supposed to be the sergeant who has to identify the Doctor for Crichton at the end of the scene (continuity mangling though that would have been).
