I would really like to know if anyone on this forum actually met, saw in person, or saw Harry H. Corbett or Wilfrid Brambell perform live.
If so, please share the experience with us all.

My claim to fame is a signed photo from Harry H, which I got in Feb 1981. It's an action shot of him performing live in his Harold clobber.

Hey Rian you just made me feel ancient!
Thanks!

I was only 14 when I wrote to him in 1981. I had just seen Carry on Screaming and wanted to tell him how much I'd enjoyed it. Wish I'd written to Wilfrid too but way back then he just freaked me out as at that time I only really knew him from the rather dreadful film Some Will, Some Won't.

Yeah the signed photo's cool. He addressed the envelope himself too (Yeah I kept that aswell - I am so sad!).
