A Stupid Boy - Jimmy Perry
From the creator of Dad's Army comes a fascinating and highly entertaining autobiography packed full with the people, stories and experiences that inspired many of the characters and scenes from this much-loved comedy. But it doesn't just stop with Dad's Army. Jimmy Perry is also responsible for the other hugely popular British comedies It Ain't Half Hot Mum, Hi-De-Hi! and You Rang, M'Lord?.
A Stupid Boy is Jimmy's story from his early years growing up in London, his experiences in the Watford Home Guard, as a Gunner in Burma, as a member of the Royal Artillery Concert Party that travelled the Indian subcontinent entertaining the troops, as a Redcoat in Butlins, at RADA, in show business and much, much more. Read all Jimmy's fantastic stories as he relates, as only he can, the amazing real-life experiences that inspired the key ingredients of the comedies we have all come to know and love.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
