Britain says "Happy Birthday" to Clive Dunn, Jimmy Page, Susannah York and Scott Walker.
Clive Dunn, actor and comedian is 90 today. As Corporal Jones in the sitcom about the 'Home Guard' called 'Dads' Army' and set in Britain the Second World War between 1939 and 1945, what pleasure he gave us when we watched on black and white t.v. on a sunday night.
How convincingly he played Jack Jones the butcher in Wilmington-on-Sea , who remembered Army Service in the Sudan under General Kitchener and the 'fuzzy-wussies' who did not like 'it', the 'bayonets' up them.
Jimmy Page, rock guitarist is 73 today :
Susannah York, actor is 68 today :
Scott Walker, singer, is 67 today
