'Stars in Battledress' as the army entertainers were known, was a flying squad of artistes that included such famous names as Charlie Chester, Michael Denison, Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe, Janet Brown and Faith Brook. The RAF Gang Shows boasted the talents of Tony Hancock, Peter Sellers (then a brilliant drummer), Dick Emery and David Lodge, while Donald Hewlett, Jon Pertwee, Arthur Lane and Russ Conway were among naval personnel that entertained British forces during WWII. The post-war Combined Services Entertainment enjoyed Frankie Howerd, Jimmy Perry, Ian Carmichael, Kenneth Williams and Stanlely Baxter in its ranks. Stars in Battledress is Bill Pertwee's insider account of how shows were put on in the various theatres of war and, for some, in the POW camps of eastern Europe and the Far East.
