Our Heroes In The Home Guard

I've been avidly watching the BBC tributes to their most successful erstwhile comedy drama, Dad's Army, celebrating its fortieth anniversary. I'm a devoted and loyal fan of the series and have many DVDs of them. I watched Mr Ross in military attire last night interviewing the actors who played the Reverend T Farthing, Mrs Fox, Hodges, Pike and, not least, Corporal "they don't like it up 'em" Jones.

I salute the memory of Captain Mainwaring, Sergeant Wilson, Private Godfrey MM, Fraser and the other indispensable characters in that wonderful classic series. I particularly enjoyed the spiv, Walker.

God bless them all for giving the British Nation so much joy.
