13 Dads Army Fact & Fiction - Talk by Steve Roberts

Home Guard by Steve Roberts
An affectionate look at both the Home Guard and its portrayal in the TV series Dad’s Army. Why was the Home Guard formed and what did it do? The TV series created
memorable characters and catchphrases and is still loved today, but the real Home Guard lost over 1,600 members, killed on duty, during its lifetime, with two of its number posthumously receiving the George Cross. The talk sets the record straight with lively humour.
