Thetford Unveils Statue To Mainwaring’s Dad’s Army

TO Thetford town centre, Norfolk, where David Croft unveiled a statue in honour of the TV comedy series Dad’s Army. The effigy is of Captain Mainwaring, played by actor Arthur Lowe. Bill Pertwee arrived to sit beside the bronze. In a blackout you grab at any company you can get.

Incidentally, the series was filmed in Thetford. And, interestingly, Thetford has never invaded by the Germans. And it won’t be – not since they built the bypass to Norwich…
