I don’t think so Daily Telegraph
I would think the references to , Kitchener , Sudan, Deserts and indeed even Fuzzy Wuzzy , place his military service firmly in the Sudan , quite long way from South Africa. [Oh look the wikipedia entry even mentions Dad’s Army]
Still par for the course of the lazy , ignorant journalism I’ve come to expect these days.
Whilst on the subject of Dad’s Army , does anyone else like me remembering as a child laughing at the slapstick antics of Corporal Jones and yet re-watching them years later find it leaves them cold and unamused.
But at the same time revelling in the masterful comic timing and acting of Arthur Lowe and John Le Mesurier .
