The British Local Defence Volunteers were made up of those, such as the old and the young, who were ineligible to serve in the regular armed forces. Later known as the Home Guard, they are the inspiration for the comedy TV show “Dad’s Army”.
The set includes ten figures who, without their uniforms, you can tell was a force made up of local tradesmen and shopkeepers.
Are you old enough to remember Dad’s Army?
