Wartime re-enactors, 1940s vehicles and even a Winston Churchill lookalike were in Swaffham on Saturday September 22 for the town’s Dad’s Army event.
Re-enactors from the Dad’s Army Museum brought along a Jones the Butchers Van and 1940s singers entertained the crowds with the help of the Thursford organ.
The Red Lion organised the visit from the platoon and businesses and market traders had the chance to join in with the fun by decorating their shops and stalls with a 1940s theme.
The event, lasting from 11am until 3pm, was supported by the Swaffham Town Council and saw crowds visit the market place to get involved.
