Welcome to everyone who has joined recently. Always great to see new fans coming in to the forum and yes knowledge of other things asides from Dad's Army is good too, (especially old films Michelle!), its always interesting how Dad's Army even overlaps into these!
Anyway a great welcome and hope u enjoyparticipating in the forums!
My names Steve & I’m from Gloucestershire. I’m 43 & have been a fan of Dad’s Army all of my life. As with most people in there 40s we’ve grown up with it. I’ve been a member of DAAS for just over 10 years now. Unfortunately am unable to get to any of the events in Norfolk due to health reasons. I did attend a local event in Bristol where I got to see Eric Longworth recite his lines from The Godiva Affair. “Fleshings!!!” I was also a member of DAASNZ for a few years until Dave had to unfortunately had to call it a day.
DAAS sent out a survey the other week asking what’s, your three favourite episodes & two favourite characters. I did answer but thought how cruel & sadistic those two questions were.
Favourite episodes I put down: Ring Dem Bells, The Battle For Godfrey’s Cottage & A.Wilson (Manager) but truth be told I like ever episode for very different reasons.
Favourite Characters I put Mainwaring & Walker but I love them all. A testament to Perry & croft as all the characters where perfectly casted, but then again they done it with all their comedies.
Dad’s Army is my favourite Croft & Perry also It Aint Half Hot Mum. Big fan of Allo,Allo, Hi-De-Hi etc etc.
Even the Hun makes a pretty poor fighter with his head buried in a handkerchief! Captain G. Mainwaring
