Upwey ?   ( The river Wey goes up after rain )
  Gauntlet Chief Commissioner

Location:
Reservoir?
Open floor if correct.

Reservoir is correct.  Now who would like to take up the gauntlet?
  Lad_Porter Chief Commissioner

Location: Yarra Glen
Gauntlet taken up, but with a cry of encouragement, for example?  That is to follow.  
  Alamein_Line Chief Commissioner

Gowrie ?

Carnegie?

Gowrie is wrong, but Carnegie is correct.

Cry of encouragement - CARN (as in CARN THE CROWS)
For example - E.G.  (Initials of Latin words Exempli Gratia, meaning "for example")
That is [to follow] - I.E. (Initials of Latin words Id Est, meaning "that is")

Back to Plan B ......

Thanks Lad_Porter  - a brief clue this time ...

"GH"
  Lad_Porter Chief Commissioner

Glenhuntly would be too obvious, so I will try Middle Brighton - because "GH" is in the middle of the word "BRIGHTON".

Middle Brighton it is!

Back to you Lad_Porter

Dads Army boss was extra virtuous at first, but then fell off the wagon.


Time for a hint. To be grammatically correct, the clue should contain an apostrophe: "Dad's Army boss ......"
The apostrophe has been left out of the clue so as to be consistent with the solution.
