I loved him in ''It Aint Half Hot Mum"

I still use his catch phrase "Oh dear, how sad, never mind"

I had never seen him before this thread, so looked him up on U Tube.
He appeared to enjoy his sergeant-major role, strange as it was, i,e, mannerisms and speech of a sexually ambivalent character. Humour that would not be tolerated today.

They will not allow reruns of the series because it is now seen as RACIST.

Quite agree. Compared with todays so-called comedy it is leagues ahead and much less offensive.

Re-run the series. Two’s up to the humourless PC brigade. They don’t need to watch it. As often said “if you can’t take a joke, you shouldn’t have joined.
