    Did a search but couldn't see this mentioned before.

    Anyone seen the Channel 4 series called "The Real Dad's Army"?

    Some great bits about WW2, including secret army units, secret buildings, tunnels, bunkers, pill boxes, etc.

    There are only 3 episodes.

    Well worth a watch if you've not seen them.

    I just watched all three Episodes.

    Episode 1 is an intro, and about the Home Guard formation.
    Episode 2 talks about the buildings and infrastructure of how to stop an invasion.
    Episode 3 is about the "Secret Army" which is interesting.

    The presenter visits quite a few places over the country, but in true Urban Explorer style, he doesn't tell you where he is........

    Saw it the first time round, and is a pretty good report on the Home Guard, and the Auxiliary Units who were better equipped mainly due to their smaller numbers etc It should be noted that the Auxiliary Units were not part of the Home Guard, dispite being numbered 201,202 & 203

    Have bookmarked for future reference.
