Classic TV Moments: Dad’s Army – The Ginger Wig

Published

on

In this classic moment from sitcom great Dad’s Army, the Walmington-on-Sea platoon are in danger of being ‘retired’ from their status as ‘front line troops’ and must attempt to convince some visiting top brass that they are younger than they really are.

Captain Mainwaring is in his office trying on a ginger wig. His vanity in front of the mirror says everything about him, while the expressions of John Le Mesurier (Wilson) are an absolute treat. Le Mesurier is often overlooked in the rush to praise Arthur Lowe, but he was a consummate comic actor.
