The story of an ordinary man who lived through extraordinary times. Told with love, laughter and song.
A touching and funny tribute to Arthur Smith’s own father, Syd Smith. who fought at El Alamein and became a Prisoner of War and ended the war in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany.
In the 1950s PC Syd patrolled London’s South Bank and met a gallery of characters whom he tried his best not to arrest.
Arthur tells this 20th century story with laughter, music reﬂections and a hilarious photo.
Phenomenal... amusing, engrossing and inspirational
