The Dad's Army Stamp Is Coming


Listen up, you stupid boy.


Royal Mail are launching a new set of stamps, covered in characters from Dad's Army.


It's becasue the show's turning 50 and commemorative stamps are pretty much Royal Mail's thing.



It's a set of eight stamps, featuring Captin Mainwaring, Private Pike, Private Frazer and more. 


Ian Lavender, who played Pike, said it was "overwhelming" to be featured on a stamp. Clearly a man with simple pleasures in life.



You can get them from June 26th. We'll post you one.


Watch: Don't tell him Pike
