If you're Dad thought it was true to life, how the hell did we win the warFirst episode in 1968 I heard on the radio tonight. I was surprised as I remember watching it.
My dad thought it was very funny and true to life. He’d been in the Homeguard (Local Defence Volunteers was the original name) before he joined the RN.
Well my dad had two stories of his time with the Home Guard. The first was when he was either cleaning or just holding his rifle and managed to fire a round through the village hall roof bringing part of the ceiling down on his head. The officer in charge (just like Captain Mainwaring according to dad) came racing out of his office thinking the Germans had arrived.If you're Dad thought it was true to life, how the hell did we win the war
