John Le Mesurier Remembered

John Le Mesurier's self-penned death notice
The Times, 16 November 1983
John Le Mesurier, Sergeant Wilson in Dad's Army died on 15 November 1983.

His self-penned death notice published in The Times the following day said stated: "John Le Mesurier Wishes it to be known that he conked out on November 15th. He sadly misses his family and friends."

John's announcement certainly raised a few smiles which is undoubtedly what he would have wanted.

John's autobiography A Jobbing Actor was published posthumously.
