You were from an era when acting was part of making people laugh and humour was of a subtler and gentler nature. Today's remake would see you saying 'They don't like taking it up the a*se' and 'Don't sh*t yourself Captain Mainwaring'.

May you rest 'at ease' Clive.

said to my dad last night about CLIVE DUNN and he said he was one of the young ones of dad's army... was a bit confused as he didnt look young..

went home and remembered the video of "grandad" and utbed it.. was from 1971.. and he looked old but 2012 - 1971 = 41 which means he was only 51 when he was in the video so must have been in his late 40s to mid 50s when he was in dads army..

anyway RIP but will always bring laughter when watching DADS ARMY which is still on tv nowadays..

I am amazed that the last series was filmed in 1977 and it is still being shown regularly on TV. How many other shows from that era (1968- 1977) have stood the test of time so well? In fact when I watch it looks authentically 1940s. (Though I was not around at that time.)

Interestingly (don't all yawn!) my Dad was Arthur Lowe's bank manager. My Dad met him on business a couple of times and thought he was very much like Captain Mainwaring!

Amother interesting (and really pedantic point now given the passing of time) is that the whole series was actually told as flashback from Mainwaring's memory of events from the war.

What really amuses me is that I actually knew people who used to be behind in all their drill steps for real....! just like Corporal Jones..

A very talented actor, much admired within the profession.
Sadly missed but his screen performances will live on, thankfully.
R.I.P.   kiss

Dads Army was funny when I was a kid and hilarious when I watch it again now. Clive Dunn RIP. Old soldiers don't die they just "fall out".
