Webstore: Dad’s Army: Godfrey

Although well-liked by the others in the platoon, retired shop assistant Godfrey’s relaxed demeanour, weak bladder (“Do you think I might be excused?”) and tendency to fall asleep can lead some to see him as a bit of a liability. Godfrey’s true background shows something far from it, however…

During the dark days of 1940, Britain was under dire threat of Nazi invasion. A massive citizen army, the Local Defence Volunteers, was raised to defend their families and homes. Although armed with old or ad hoc weapons and equipment the Home Guard, as it became known, was a vital part of the defence of British shores. Based on these proud defenders of the realm, the classic TV series, Dad’s Army produced some of television’s most enduring catchphrases and characters as it followed the adventures of Walmington-on-Sea’s Home Guard platoon.
