Dad's Army Dads autographed letter signed JAMES BECK Ultra Rare 995.00

Dad's Army Dads autographed letter signed JAMES BECK - Ultra Rare !

The only James Beck signed letter we have ever seen. (note: Slight reflection on glass in photo)
The item is in excellent condition, with a perfect signature, and comes with the original hand written envelope written by Beck, and dated 19/5/66.
Probably the rarest James Beck item you will ever see. James Beck and Armold Ridley are the hardest Dads Army autographs to find.

By 1973, Beck had already recorded five series of Dad's Army and was working on the sixth, as well as working on the radio series of the show.
Location filming for series six was completed when, whilst opening a fete in aid of Guide Dogs for the Blind, he suddenly felt ill.
He returned home and within an hour was rushed to Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton[3] suffering from pancreatitis.
He died there three weeks later aged 44.

His death was a great shock to his fellow cast members, as well as to Jimmy Perry and David Croft, who had looked forward to his return to the show.
In series six, during the episode "Things That Go Bump In the Night", Sergeant Wilson is shown writing Walker's name on the window of Jones's van with his finger, being ordered to "take that man's name".
Walker does not appear in any of the studio scenes in the first half of the episode, and much of his dialogue was taken over by Private Sponge (a seldom-heard extra in the series).
The dialogue leads viewers to believe that he is with the group, though. Walker is then seen in the location scenes in the second half of the episode, as these were filmed several weeks prior to the studio scenes.

In the following episode, "The Recruit" (which also happened to be the series finale), there is a note left in Walker's place when the unit goes on parade.
Mainwaring reads the note (written by Walker), in which he apologises for his absence and indicates that he is busy conducting one of his many shady deals.
This is the last time Walker is ever mentioned in the show; his character was written out off-screen, with no explanation given for his departure.
