Autograph hunters were given a treat at the weekend when many of the surviving Dad's Army cast and crew visited a Norfolk steam museum.
More than 1,000 people descended on Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens, near Diss, for its annual celebration of the popular sitcom that was filmed in the area.
A long line of Dad's Army fans queued outside the venue's autograph tent on Sunday to meet the likes of Bill Pertwee, who played Warden Hodges, Frank Williams (Rev Farthing), Pamela Cundell (Mrs Fox).
Writers of the hit comedy series, David Croft, Jimmy Perry, and director Harold Snoad also arrived with the actors on an old London Routemaster bus.
Ray King, events manager at Bressingham Steam Museum, said it was the 12th year that the venue had hosted the Dad's Army Day, which was always well attended.
The event came complete with second world war re-enactors, displays of military cars and trucks, and some of the vehicles that were used in the BBC television series.
