Webstore: Dad’s Army: Rev. Farthing & Verger

no comments

One half of the double act played with the Vicar, the Verger fawns over Reverend Farthing, often referring to him wrongly as “Your Reverence”. Clearly antagonistic of the Home Guard he often refers to them as ‘vanadals’ due to damage caused to the Church Hall in which the platoon meet following their HQ being bombed.

The somewhat camp Reverend Farthing is caught in the middle of the feud between the pompous Mainwaring and the uncouth Hodges. That he also has to share the church all with them doesn’t help matter and whilst he tries to remain impartial he invariably gets caught up in their escapades…

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.
