Robb Wilton (1881-1957) performed Music Hall style routines, often playing bumbling authority figures. He had a significant influence on Ken Dodd and Les Dawson, as well as on the TV sitcom Dad's Army. His most popular sketch began "The day War broke out, my missus said to me, 'It's up to you...You've got to stop it'. I said, 'Stop what?' She said, 'The War'".
