I think Windsor Davies served as an RAEC Sergeant for his National Service. It was this that gave him the opportunity to observe the mannerisms of Sergeant Majors

Oh yes, that was a classic !

I recall that the Char Wallah is sitting on the verandah singing "Land of Hope and Glory", to be rewarded with "SHATAAAAAP !"

We don't seem to get that daft British comedy anymore, do we ?
