Day two of launching the new children’s book ‘Chesnut and Daphne’ saw Illustrator, John Thurman, take centre stage as Dad’s Army’s very own Sergeant Wilson.
We were thrilled to participate in the Bressingham Steam Museum and the Dad’s Army Appreciation Society 1940s event this May. They put on a great family day out where you could see living history groups, period vehicles and could have a dance too!
Dressed in original Land Girls uniform, Author Holly Brega set up a table to chat to visitors about the new book and the story behind it and John, sorry, Sergeant Wilson took part in the Dad’s Army displays throughout the day!
Bressingham has a great Dad’s Army exhibition and have leant some of their collection to the BBC when they were filming in and around Thetford. Dad’s Army was a television comedy that ran from 1968 to 1977 about the Home Guard in Britain during WW2.
