Dad's army 2016 decor ideas 1940's style

 

Dad's Army is one of the best-loved British sitcoms of all time! Set during World War Two, it focuses on the misadventures of the hapless Home Guard of Walmington-On-Sea. Now, in 2016, thirty-nine years after the last episode aired, a movie adaptation is being released, with an A-list cast. Toby Jones is filling Captain Mainwaring's boots, whilst Bill Nighy stars as second-in-command Sergeant Wilson. The film also stars Michael Gambon and Catherine Zeta-Jones! In the 2016 adaptation, the Home Guard receive a report that there's a spy in their midst, and they must winkle out who it is.
