Webstore: Dad’s Army: Wilson

no comments

A distinguished veteran of the First World War, Arthur Wilson is something of a ladies man – as his effect on Pike’s mum shows! A man of breeding, Wilson has a less than authoritarian approach to discipline “would you mind awfully falling in please?” followed by “thank you so much”.

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.

The blister contains 2 superbly detailed miniatures sculpted by Paul Hicks – representing a member of cast from the classic TV series, Dad’s Army in civilian and Home Guard attire!
