Dad's Army

Beloved sitcom about the struggles of a Home Guard platoon during World War II who are fighting incompetence, age and pomposity more than Nazis

Not sure quite what it is you're suggesting but do feel free to share as much as you wish in these forums! A dedicated thread seems best to keep it together.

Maybe modesty, but Michael has posted a nice piece here on his grandfather..........

Tempted to create a thread and/or copy and paste, but thought I would leave that to you Aaron. ;)
