Harry H. Corbett,
When World War Two breaks out, the small seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea finds itself less than ably defended by the elderly and inept members of Captain Mainwaring's home guard unit. Put on manoeuvres by a visiting Major-General, Mainwaring's men manage to bungle one task after another. However, when a group of Germans from a scout plane take the Mayor hostage at the church hall, the clueless soldiers might still have a chance of saving the day!Written by
Mainwaring, Wilson and Pike leave their bank during their working day to visit a local radio shop in order to listen to Anthony Eden, the Secretary of State for War, announcing the formation of the LDV, later called the Home Guard. Eden's announcement was actually broadcast in the evening, after bank employees would have finished work. See more »
