Dad’s Army 50th Anniversary Stamp unveiled

A local resident is set to appear on a special Set of Royal Mail Stamps.

“Don’t Panic!” He isn’t just any resident. Ian Lavender who lives locally and the other stars of Dad’s Army are set to appear on the stamps to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the BBC Sitcom.

Each stamp bears a catchphrase such as “we’re doomed” and the iconic “You stupid boy!”

The program also has other local connections with many of the outdoor scenes being filmed in and around Thetford.
