A tribute to David Croft

As most of you will know by now, David Croft, co-writer, co-creator and producer of Dad's Army, has died at the age of 89. He died at his holiday home in Portugal on the 27th September. His family called him a "truly great man" in a statement. A statement on Croft's website read: 'The family of comedy legend David Croft OBE are sad to report that David died peacefully in his sleep at his house in Portugal earlier today. He was a truly great man, who will be missed by all who had the great fortune of knowing and loving him'. This is our brief tribute to David.

Looters are threatened with being shot!
