Dads Army - Episode 1

The very first episode of the cult TV series Dad's Army featured Swallow Bank Limited.

Broadcast on 31st July 1968, Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe), manager of Swallow's Bank, takes it upon himself to form the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard platoon, after hearing of the formation of the Local Defence Volunteers, declaring himself Captain, and making his chief clerk, Wilson, Sergeant.

A map showing the location of Swallow's Bank in Walmington-on-Sea can be found on the Dads Army Appreciation Society website at  www.dadsarmy.co.uk.

With thanks to Diane Harwell for spotting this Swallow item.
