Actor. He was a former member of the Parachute Regiment and was born in London. He was famous as Mr. Mash in the BBC comedy series Are You Being Served?, appearing in the first three series before being replaced by Arthur English.

Other TV appearances included Dad's Army, On the Buses, Look - Mike Yarwood!, Rising Damp and The Detectives. He also played alongside Frankie Howerd in two of his BBC shows Up Pompeii! and Whoops Baghdad.
