Dad's Army

Bressingham has been the official home to the Dads Army Appreciation Society's collection since 2000.

The exhibition comprises a recreation of Walmington on Sea the fictional home to Captain Mainwaring and his men.

Bressingham was happy to lend to the BBC some of its historic collection to feature in the show, Traction Engines and Rollers feature in episodes but probably the most memorable exhibit in the Bressingham collection is the Fire Engine.

The Television Series 'Dad's Army' ran from 1968 to 1977 with a total of 80 episodes - and you can still catch the repeats to this day, over 30 years after the filming of the very first episode.

The Motor vehicles on display are all Dad's Army related. The Leyland Fire Engine, Ford Model AA Jones' Butcher's Van, the Dust Cart from the 1971 film and an Austin 8 that was used in one of the episodes.
