50 Moments That Made Dad’s Army: #9 Snow Camouflage


Where would Dad’s Army be without a parade and what would a parade be without Mainwaring and his daft ideas? In the 1976 Christmas special The Love of Three Oranges those two things are brought together.

This provides an opportunity for some lovely moments including Fraser dressed in his mother’s wedding dress and Godfrey in a Pierrot costume, complete with pom-poms.

It’s really got nothing to do with the story that follows, but it’s a great moment in its own right.
