Farewell: Bill Kerr aged 92

Bill Kerr obituary | Television & radio | The Guardian

Perhaps Bill was the first Aussie I ever heard when he walked on in Hancock's Half Hour

as the bloke from Wagga Wagga. And I was amazed to find WaggaWagga.  was a real place.

Bill was a laconic butt for "Tony" and the show was so funny.
Above Tony Hancock, Moira Lister, BILL KERR, Sid James

Bill had walk in parts in all manner of films Bill Kerr - IMDb ..  amazing his first film was 1933. Bill often very funny but also serious roles such as The Lighthorsemen (1987) - as General Chauvel

I will always remember his mad role in Razorback (1984) - IMDb

about the wild monster pig that brings terror to an outback town and Bill is the professional hunter  "There's something about blasting the shit out of a razorback that brightens up my whole day. "

Good on yer cobber
