50 Moments That Made Dad’s Army: #8 Angels’ Voices

We’ve not heard much from Corporal Jones so far in this series, although he is the source of a lot of the comedy in Dad’s Army.

That frequently comes from his confusion and never more is that the case then in this episode, The Bullet is Not for Firing, when Jones comes to believe that he has reached his final moments in the middle of  court of inquiry.

It closes with a classic moment of military vandalism which brings-down the wrath of the verger and vicar on the platoon, once again, as the credits roll.



50 Moments that made Dad’s Army is a series of blog posts each focusing on one moment that helped define the popular comedy series. There will be one post for each of the 50 days leading-up to the 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of the first episode of the series on 31st July 1968. 50 Moments that Made Dad’s Army is brought to you by walmington-on-line.co.uk and copyright of all video clips belongs to the BBC.
