That's sad, but at least the BBC will show a few episodes of it ain't half hot as a tribute.

"RIP Windsor Davies, a National Serviceman who served in Egypt and Libya with the East Surrey Regiment."

Davies also starred alongside Donald Sinden as two rival antique dealers in the long-running ITV sitcom Never The Twain.

Although overshadowed by It Ain't Half Hot Mum, it ran for more than 60 episodes.

In 1978, Davies also featured in one-off BBC drama Grand Slam, which gained cult status and was still fondly remembered years later - gaining a new lease of life with a DVD release.

Davies, who retired from acting in his 70s, was also the voice of Sergeant Major Zero in the 1980s sci-fi series Terrahawks. As well as stage appearances, he had roles in more than 20 films, including two Carry Ons.

But he will be remembered most fondly for playing Battery Sergeant Major "Shut Up" Williams in It Ain't Half Hot Mum, which ran for 56 episodes between 1974 and 1981.

"March! Left right, left right, left right, left right, move yourself move yourself, move yourself!....."

"Never before have I seen such a blatant display of poofery!"

"Oh dear. How sad. Never mind. "

A fine Comedy actor and loved to sing.....

I'm in the 'thought he was already dead' camp.

Glad he lived longer than I thought. Great memories Emitdeb. Don Estelle such a talent too.

Wonder if the BBC will show it aint half hot mum....I somehow doubt it...

More memories: turn the volume DOWN!!! (I did warn you!) 'Mr la de da Gunner Graham' Laugh

Is "IT AIN"T HALF HOT MUM" still mysteriously banned from British television, lest one human tragedy somewhere on the planet takes offence, and the sky falls in?

It's: "Never have I seen such a display of blatant poofery"
it's a phrase I'm going to start using in everyday life :)

He was also a very talented serious actor but will be best remembered for his comedy roles.

It`s ridiculous that they won`t repeat Aint Half Hot Mum - classic comedy - on tv because of PC.

At least one can buy the dvds Grin
