Army Appreciation Society
have been a member of the Dad's Army Appreciation Society
(DAAS) for over four years now. Whilst being a member I have found the regular newsletter "Permission To Speak
Sir" most informative. This features interviews, reviews
and location reports. There is also a society produced "Dad's
which is also highly recommended for lots of interesting facts
about the series.
highlight of being in the Appreciation Society for me was that
I was able to attend the 30th Anniversary celebrations
at the Oval Cricket Ground, London in 1998.
There I met many actors
who appeared in the series
including Bill Pertwee (ARP Warden Hodges) - who happens to be
the president of the DAAS, Clive Dunn (Lance Corporal Jones),
Ian Lavender (Private Pike) and Pamela Cundell (Mrs Fox).
was a day I will never forget and it was wonderful to say thankyou
to some of the actors who
made me laugh so much since I was a child!
More information about the DAAS can
be found on my links page.
