Classic TV comedy from the Home Guards at Walmington-On-Sea who are both bumbling and ineffectual as well as incompetent which makes life chaotic for all around! Originally transmitted in 1968 (and recently voted no.4 in Britain's Best Sitcom), this DVD release contains all of the first series followed by the surviving episodes of the second series.
