According to Wikipedia:

Prominent members of the Intelligence Corps

Tony Hart, Artist, presenter

Did anyone in the forum serve with these jokers... erm chaps?

Can anyone else name other "famous" types that served in our beloved Corps? And when I say famous I don't mean for leaving a pistol in a loo...

No. He was in the HLI as a regular and then joined the Rifle Brigade in 1939. He served in the 'GHQ Liaison Regiment', alias 'Phantom', for most of WW2.

NTTT?

Yes....I know that she serves with the Corps. It's more a plea for help with the matter, as she's CTTM (Closer To The Museum...)
Is her avatar the new sign for the museum? Just found it on the Corps website?

They can't have been members of ICAREC. I mean look at their profiles after their Corps careers:

Tony Hart - Plasticene Manipulator



Ken Roach - Married half woman half giant turtles neck




And heres one of his adorable wife:



Mind you, if you look closely it does somewhat resemble Gail Platt

Just a quick starter for 10 whilst its lunch...

Anthony Blunt - but we chucked after failing his JOs' Cse. Art historian

Alan Bennett - playwrite and author

Michael Frayn - playwrite and author

Brian Forbes - actor/director and husband of the woman who used to do the Fairy ads.

Sir Peter Parker of British Rail fame (well he was my Dad's boss so I think he is famous).

Enoch Powell.

Sir Oswald Birley RA - artist.

More later.

PS Howayman - the 'Depot' has moved to somewhere with electricity. Home is a nice place called Chicksands and the Museum has more than one room now.

Bill Roache was never a member of the Corps - he was 2nd Bn Royal Welch Fusiliers.

Neither was Dirk Bogarde - he was in the Queens! Honest!!! :p
