THE HAT SQUAD: HUGH LLOYD

From the BBC Online:

After years working in theatre, actor Hugh Lloyd made his first TV appearance in 1957, becoming a regular on 'Hancock's Half Hour'. He went on to co-star with Terry Scott in 'Hugh and I' and appeared alongside Peggy Mount in 'Lollipop Loves Mr Mole'. He was much in demand as a character actor with roles in a number of stage and TV plays. He also appeared in films as diverse as "Mary Queen of Scots" and "Quadrophenia".

Mr Lloyd, 85, died at his home in Worthing on July 14 after suffering shortness of breath.

Mourners at his memorial service wore blue and white to pay their last respects to the popular actor. (The color co-ordination was to mark the star of stage and screen’s passion for Chester City Football Club.)
