|Windsor Davies & Don Estelle - Radio Times, 1976|
There was little time for celebrating Christmas in the jungle when It Ain't Half Hot Mum! hit TV screens on December 21, 1976. It was Gunner Parkin's 21st birthday and comical events surrounding the young soldier¹s birthday present were making the light entertainment in Jimmy Perry and David Croft¹s wartime sit-com.
The Radio Times carried a portrait of two of the shows stars Windsor Davies and Don Estelle, whom in 1975 had a UK chart topper with Whispering Grass. Although the hits had taken a bit of a nosedive during 1976, Estelle was still recording and both stars were making numerous appearances on TV and Radio over the festive season.
