DON'T PANIC, DON'T PANIC! but RIP Clive Dunn

I only remember him from the classic 'dads army' but he was brilliant in that. Any Americans or others who haven't heard of it I recommend it highly.

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

You don't have to be stupid to be wrong, and you don't have to be wrong to be stupid.

Yeah, it's crazy, I think James beck (private walker) was the first to die and he was pretty young.

That song makes me wish he had died much sooner than is being reported in the OP.

Vale Clive Dunn. He had a good innings anyway. He was a good fella.

Actually, I would like a pickle.

RIP indeed. Reported as four years in a P.W. Camp. God Bless him for sharing his talent and sharing a laugh with us all.
