    @555sourcherry at first i thought hes wrong. and the A 21 as they didn’t have motorways but A roads. but now i believe it to be 8:21. as in, a bus or a train time

    @NationalVideoWatcher love that episode

  3. NathanF11989 says:

    @dundeerox I think it was supposed to be jeering at the Nazi flags, as if to say: “Ha ha you can’t get me, I’m on the other side of the Channel!”

  4. NationalVideoWatcher says:

    “You name vill also go on zhe leest! What is it?”

    “Don’t tell him Pike!”

    “Pike!”

    @555sourcherry It cleary states in the Song “Mr Brown goes off to town on the 8:21″ You can even look the lyrics up if you think I’m wrong.

  7. ImageDissectors says:

    @555sourcherry Haha! It’s a train timetable entry. As in “Mr Brown is travelling in on the 9.30 First Capital Connect service to London King’s Cross”

  8. 555sourcherry says:

    @Andi090386

    uuuuumm. it’s “and he ain’t 21″, not “on the 8:21″. I honestly doubt they had motorways back then, and what sort of motorway name is that anyway.

    I like how the England triangle is taunting the German ones across the channel! I bet it pissed the Germans to put up with England doing that for four years.

    Someone at YouTube has made an update (sequel)to this under title “Sad’s Army”.
    How about a new update: “Gad’s Army”, referring to the very latest news from North Africa? Any comments?

    @acdcrock93 mind your own business

    Europeans drowned out most colored culture until The 80′s…

  14. acdcrock93 says:

    @mrmagicroundcircle It was written about the war in the 60s. It wasnt written during the war. I cant work out if you are a lying little kid(/fail troll) or just plain retarded. Either way, you have changed your story many times, so please just stop.

  15. 12Jakeyboy says:

    @mrmagicroundcircle I think it’s ‘M.r Brown goes off to town on the A21′

  16. Andi090386 says:

    @KZHX 90′s for me mate. Stil record it every week “Yes Sir Capitain Manwarning I do Sir, I records it every week”
    Sorry couldn resista bit of Jones style humor there.

  17. helpi4gotmykeys says:

    Ive just noticed, the british flags make a w shape for winston churchill, and the nazis make a h shape for hitler.

  18. mrmagicroundcircle says:

    this theme was written during the war . the obvious lyrics says it all.

  19. ojideagu says:

    @mrmagicroundcircle Sorry to break it to you but this song was written for the TV show. Old age plays tricks on the memory which blurs the lines of reality. She heard this in the 60′s and somehow it’s fused in her memory of the Blitz.

    If you think we’re on the run
