I am adding Windsor Davies to my list not only for him being a very funny man but also for being the voice of Sergeant Major Zero in the terahawks.

I don't think there is anyone in comedy today that could match his booming voice.

And I must say, sorry pingl I still don't like It Ain't Half Hot Mum. :D

Tis cool :D But is Windsor Davies dead? Please tell me not.

To be honest pingl, it was the little fat gay one that used to piss me off, not for being gay, just for being on the TV in general.

He was like Christopher Biggins and Julian Clary rolled in to one.

Please don't tell me that was you, for Christ sake. Whistling nnocently :D :D

Little Lofty, 'Whispering Grass', now he is dead, but not a comedy genius, could sing a tune though. :D You have discovered my secret identity I am indeed Biggins' and Clary's love child. :D

I saw Lofty singing in a shopping mall in Hammersmith once.

Just thought I'd share that with you.

Lofty did a summer season at a theatre where I was working as a dogsbody, I think he was with Bill Maynard and someone else. Never spoke to him though :( Tell a lie it was Trevor Bannister

I was just walking past and he was standing in the middle of the hall thingy dressed in his army kit, singing. Quite bizarre to be honest.

This is the weirdest thread I've seen in a while.

How exactly is a man who's been dead for 9 years going to appear in a potential future film, Nigel? :/

Yes, he's dead. Windsor Davies is very much alive.
