Betty's Diary Official Launch Photographs

Dad's Army Museum August 6th 2002

Cpl Jones's butcher's van from the series Dad's Army was brought out of retirement especially for this unique event. Here are a few photographs taken on the day.

Above: Angela Spall, from Thorogood, and Jones's van, a genuine cultural icon.

This is the original van as used in the television series - not the one used in the film.
