What is it about the month of August when it comes to Carry On related birthdays? I hadn't really noticed until now but as I've been blogging either good wishes to Carry On actors who are still with us and celebrating or remembering those who are sadly not, it's made me realise that August is a really prolific month for Carry On birthday celebrations.
Let's look at the evidence:
Jacki Piper, born 3 August 1946
Joan Hickson, born 5 August 1906
Barbara Windsor, born 6 August 1937
Liz Fraser, born 14 August 1930
Jim Dale, born 15 August 1935
Marianne Stone, born 23 August 1922
Imogen Hassall, born 25 August 1942
Peter Gilmore, born 25 August 1931
Pat Coombs, born 27 August 1926
Windsor Davies, born 28 August 1930
I think you'll agree that's quite a roll call of names! Can you think of any more that I've forgotten? If so get in touch!
