    We used to watch It Ain't Half Hot Mum when i was a nipper it wouldn't go down well today but in its time it was funny, it ran between 1974 and 1981.






    Actor and star of It Ain't Half Hot Mum, Windsor Davies, has died.

    Davies, 88, who was best known as the sergeant major in the TV series, died on Thursday, his family said.

    Born in Canning Town, London, he returned to his father's home village, Nant-y-Moel in Bridgend county, when World War Two broke out.

    His daughter Jane Davies said he and her mother, who died in September, left a family "who will all remember them with love, laughter and gratitude".

    The couple, who has been married for 62 years, had retired to France. They had five children.
