    Superb sculpting.

    In the Dad's Army series, Private Godfrey played a prostatically plagued, bumbling old man, who never wore his Military Medal ribbon. In real life, he had served during WW I, sustaining several wounds in close-quarter combat. His left hand was left virtually useless by wounds sustained on the Somme, his legs were riddled with shrapnel and he received a bayonet wound in the groin.

    He re-joined the army in 1939 following the outbreak of WW II and was commissioned into the General List as a second lieutenant.He served with the British Expeditionary Force in France during the "Phoney War", employed as a "Conducting Officer" tasked with supervising journalists who were visiting the front line. In May 1940, he returned to Britain on the overcrowded destroyer HMS Vimera, which was the last British ship to escape from the harbour during the Battle of Boulogne. Shortly afterwards, he was discharged from the Armed Forces on health grounds.He relinquished his commission as a captain in June 1940 and subsequently joined the Home Guard, in his home town of Caterham, and ENSA*, with which he toured the country.

    I suspect that he almost certainly had PTSD as a result of his WW I wounds. Like many of his generation he was quietly spoken about his wartime service.


    * ENSA: Entertainment National Service Association was formed in 1939 to provide entertainment for the troops. It was often referred to as 'Every Night Something Awful'!
