When Windsor Davies appeared in Coronation Street

Sad news reaches us today that actor Windsor Davies has passed away at the age of 88.

Windsor Davies was best known as the sergeant major in the TV series It Ain't Half Hot Mum. However he did appear in Coronation Street back in 1966 and also in a spin-off in 1967.

In Coronation Street, Windsor Davies played a Returning Officer at the local council elections, at which Len Fairclough defeated Annie Walker in September 1966.

He also appeared in You Can't Get Out Of The Wood, an episode of Street spin-off Turn out the Lights in 1967.

As well as stage appearances, he had roles in more than 20 films, including two Carry Ons. There's a lovely tribute to Windsor Davies at Carry On Blogging.
