I always wondered how old he really was - He was playing granddad when I was at primary school, He was born in 1920 so must have only just turned 50 when he was playing Corporal Jones

In reply to toad: When I was young and watching Dad's Army my dad said he was still young... ya right I thought. Proves he was a good actor. Dad's Army still a great comedy and I still love to watch it.

In addition to "Don't tell him Pike"
