The annual Pickering Wartime and 1940s Weekend saw hundreds of people attend dressed in wartime attire, turning the township into a surreal scene from the 1940s. Many participants (main picture) appeared to have taken their costume inspiration from the beloved Dad’s Army TV series, in particular the characters Lance-Corporal Jack Jones (inset left) and Commander Chuck Mainwaring (inset right).
Umm, Mainwaring was in the Navy?
And Chuck? It might be just about allowable to say the commander, Mainwaring, but Commander?
It’s the weekend so I guess the teenagers are doing the subbing.
