That just leaves the young lad as the last surviving member of the platoon.

What was his name?

That could be construed as a Wah I believe....

It would be great fun to have the entire series re-broadcast for you chaps, but I doubt we'd ever see it this side of the Pond.

Dad's Army. Good gentle comedy that could raise a belly laugh without a single swear word.

Any of you youngsters that only know him from Dad's army tune into "Round the Horn" on radio 4extra. Your in for a treat. Pure filth.

Bill Pertwee, over a thousand appearances on Round the Horne and Beyond our Ken as well as countless plays and other television programmes. An expert on the "End of the Pier " shows.
Cousin of John Pertwee. Brilliant actor, comedian and s lovely bloke. What with his passing snd that of Eddie Braben , comedy hsd lost two of the best.

Sadly Bill Pertwee, who played Warden Hodges in Dad's Army, has died, his agent has confirmed.
I can't believe he still had an agent. "Yeah Bill, good news. I got you that [insert one] Werthers/walk in bath/Stena stairlift advert"

I bought my father the complete box set for Xmas and it doesn't matter how many times you watch it, you can always watch it again. No forced laughs, no sex, swearing or filth, agreed just pure gentle comedy. I can't look at a nun now without thinking of parachuting nuns in jackboots! Timeless, even for us younger ones.

The "Entendres" were so "Double" that the BBC censors at the time didn't understand them. Brilliant stuff! Kenneth Williams and Hugh Paddick as Jules and Sandy: "Thews like oaks and BULGING lallies."

I thought the bloke who played the slightly suspect vicar (but tastefully done of course) was still with us.
Frank Williams. Yes, he's still here.
