|David Croft, Pamela Cundell and Ann Croft in 2005 |
- Andy Howells
My earliest memories of the series are watching Arthur Lowe carried away by a barrage balloon on The Day The Balloon Went Up and I was hooked ( I must have only have been 2).
So it's with some sadness when I learn of the passing of someone associated with the show, although with David's Croft's case if he hadn't have spotted the potential of Jimmy Perry's original idea for a series we may never have had Dad's Army, Allo Allo, It Ain't Half Hot Mum! Are You Being Served or any other classics he was associated with...
I had the pleasure of meeting David a few times and here's a quick snap I took of him and his wife Ann chatting with Pamela Cundell who played Mrs Fox in Dad's Army back at a Dad's Army Appreciation Society Luncheon at Bressingham in 2006.
