Go To

The cast of the hillarious war-time sitcom It Ain't Half Hot Mum.


  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: At the beginning and ending of most episodes, and a few times in between.
  • Catchphrase: "You know, there is an old Hindu proverb which say...", "Damn natives!", "Don't be such clever dickie!"
  • Once an Episode: Would say his catchphrase at the end of each episode, and each time ending it with different punchlines relating to the events of the episode.

Sergeant Major Williams

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While Williams subjects the Concert Party to a great deal of abuse, most of it stems from his desire to make them into proper soldiers; and, if they're ever in real trouble, Williams shows that he does care about them (such as in episode 40, The Dhobi Wallahs, where he delivers a heartfelt eulogy speech after he thinks Sugden has been killed).
  • Large Ham: Seeing him bellowing in his deep voice is one of the show's highlights.


Colonel Charles Reynolds

Captain Jonathan Ashwood

Bombardier Solomons

Gunner/Bombardier Beaumont

  • Attention Whore: As Gunner Graham puts it, Beaumont would do anything to get his face in front of a camera.
  • Crossdresser: Always the leading lady in all the concert party's productions. Ginger Rogers being one of his favourites.


Gunner "Lofty" Sugden

  • Beware the Nice Ones: In the episode: "Monsoon Madness"
  • Butt-Monkey: If there's ever an unpleasent job that must be done, Lofty is the Sgt Major's first choice for it.

Gunner Parkins

Gunner "Paderewski" Graham

Gunner "Atlas" Mackintosh

Gunner "Nobby" Clark

Gunner "Nosher" Evans

  • Big Eater: There is a reason he's called "Nosher".
    Evans: Grub's grub. You know, there's thousands of starving people in India. (Continues stuffing himself) There's not enough grub to go around.
    Graham: I somehow feel that your presence in India isn't helping matters.
