Dad’s Army: Wake-Up Walmington (S9EP1 BBC-1 7 Oct 1977, Sam Kydd)



Wake-Up Walmington: The people of Walmington-On-Sea are becoming apathetic about the war effort. When practicing on a firing range, Mainwaring is told to keep the noise down and Hodges is verbally assaulted for his efforts as chief warden.
