Artist's Description

Dad’s Army. A popular British BBC comedy series aired from 1968-1977.
The Walmington-On-Sea platoon of the Home Guard is commanded by pompous bank manager Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe). He’s assisted by his chief clerk, Sergeant Wilson (John Le Mesurier).
Lance Corporal Jones (Clive Dunn) is an old soldier, renowned for his frequent cries of “Don’t Panic!” and “They don’t like it up ’em!”.
Private Frazer (John Laurie) is a miserable old Scotsman whose favourite saying is “We’re doomed!”.
Private Godfrey (Arnold Ridley) spends much of his time asking if he can “be excused”.
Private Pike (Ian Lavender) is a bit of a “mummy’s boy”. His mother (Janet Davies) is Sergeant Wilson’s long-time girlfriend.
Private Walker (James Beck) is a “spiv” – there are few things that he can’t get his hands on, provided the price is right.
This motley band of men provide Walmington-on-Sea’s last line of defence against the Nazi hordes.
