The details (from wikipedia)


David William Frederick Lodge (19 August 1921 in Rochester, Kent, England – 18 October 2003 in Northwood, Middlesex, England) was an English character actor.


During the Second World War, he served in the RAF. Before turning to acting he worked as a circus clown. He also appeared in Gang Shows and variety before making his screen debut in The Cockleshell Heroes and going on to feature in many British films usually portraying military types, and often comedic roles. He was a close friend of Peter Sellers and appeared as part of Spike Milligan's team on his Q programmes.

He was very prolific during the 1950s, and in 1958 alone, he appeared in ten films.

He appeared in a 1969 episode of Randall and Hopkirk Deceased ("Who Killed Cock Robin?"), and continuing with his military-type roles, appeared alongside Windsor Davies as Company Sergeant-Major Sharp in an episode of It Ain't Half Hot Mum in 1976. He also appeared with Windsor Davies (although they are not in the same scene) in Carry On England. Lodge played the role of drunk Captain Bull who is replaced as Captain of the Battery by Captain S. Melly (Kenneth Connor). He was only in one scene of the film while Windsor Davies had a main role as Sergeant Major Bloomer. He appeared as a policeman in the opening episode of the legal drama The Main Chance. He also appeared in several of the on the buses films playing a smaller role of a driver.
