RIP Windsor Davies

British actor Windsor Davies, best known for his role as the sergeant major in TV series ‘It Ain’t Half Hot Mum’, has died at the age of 88. His family said he died peacefully on Thursday, with his daughter saying her parents left a large family “who will all remember them with love, laughter and gratitude”, according to the BBC. Born in Canning Town, east London on August 28, 1930, Davies grew up in Nant-y-Moel, Bridgend, and worked as a miner and a teacher before becoming an actor. He also topped the pop charts in 1975, with sitcom colleague Don Estelle. He had retired to France with his wife, Eluned, to whom he was married for 62 years before her death in September 2018. They had five children. Davies appeared as Sergeant Dunham in the 1973 British TV mini-series ‘Hawkeye the Pathfinder’.
