'Stars in Battledress', as the army entertainers were known, was a flying squad of artistes that included Charlie Chester, Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe. The RAF Gang Shows boasted Tony Hancock, Peter Sellers and Dick Emery. The other forces also had their hall of fame. Bill Pertwee recounts how shows were put on in the theatres of war and for some in POW Camps around the world.
