Shoulders Back Boy.
on 25 February 2016
I am a fan of Perry and Croft comedies and thought I would try this one.
Unfortunately, compared to some of their other works, this is a bit tired. The jokes appear to be half-hearted and more focused on Sergeant Major Windsor Davis and Rangi Ram.
While there are some recurring actors like John Clegg (also seen on Are You Being Served and married to fellow actress Mavis Pugh), and Kenneth Macdonald (of Only Fools and Horses fame), this has very few noticeable characters.
If you are from the generation which watched this regularly, you will probably still find it funny. Unfortunately, this has largely been outclassed by Dad's Army and should be consigned to the shadows.
