HOME GUARD UNIFORMS
Dad’s Army is now a major motion picture, the characters of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard, seem to have always been a part of British television viewing.
Catch phrases abound and are as familiar to the viewing public as the iconic uniforms worn by the members of the platoon.
Our uniforms faithfully and accurately portray those of the sit com, which in turn were faithful to the many actual Home Guard units that answered the nations call ‘in our darkest hour’.
From the service caps and shoulder flashes down to the leather gaiters your cast will look every bit the Home Guard soldier of WW2.
Please contact us on 01442 863 983 to chat about your requirements, or, better still, make an appointment to come along to our offices to view, first hand, examples of the kit that we hire for productions.
We pride ourselves on accuracy and only use good quality replicas of the 1937 pattern battledress uniforms that were issued to the HG units.
Our only concession to accuracy is that members of our Walmington-on-Sea platoon are all issued with Enfield SMLE rifles. However, we do have a Thompson sub-machine gun for Pvt.Pike!
We are also able to costume the ‘civilians’ who appear in the play. We have agood range of occupational, work and daywear suitable for your cast.
