Dad’s Army

May 2009

Featuring three of the show’s episodes: The Deadly Attachment, Mum’s Army and The Godiva Affair.

The Deadly Attachment

Mainwaring’s men have been detailed to guard a captured U-boat crew until a military escort arrives. When the escort is delayed, the platoon must house them overnight. It turns out to be a trying time; the Germans expect to be fed the finest and freshest fish and chips, but they have a defiant leader who lets it be known that he is noting down enemy names.

Mum’s Army

Captain Mainwaring’s plans to involve the women of the town in the platoon becomes rather too personal.

The Godiva Affair

As the town is still £2,000 short of the sum it requires for the purchase of a Spitfire, the platoon decide to drum up support by performing a morris dance at the fund-raising carnival. It is the identity of the Lady Godiva figure, however, that ends up grabbing the most people’s attention.
