The platoon’s nemesis – Mainwaring in particular, whom he refers to as “Napoleon” – Hodges is a greengrocer by day but also dons the black and white uniform of the area’s Chief Air Raid Warden. This level of responsibility has gone to his head and his arrogance boils over into outright antagonism of the Home Guard in the town, often resorting to blackmail to get his way…

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.
