'Allo 'Allo Shropshire

Virtual Shropshire tells us:
Stars from the cast of the hugely popular BBC sitcom ‘Allo, ‘Allo!’ will be centre-stage when the Severn Valley Railway turns back the clock once more and rolls out its big wartime nostalgia ‘1940s Weekends’, on June 25th & 26th and July 2nd & 3rd.

Vowel-mangling gendarme Officer Crabtree (Arthur Bostrom) – universally recognised for his ‘Good Moaning’ signature phrase and others such as ‘My lips are soiled’ – together with peasant-repressing Gestapo officer Herr Otto Flick (Richard Gibson), the effeminate Lieutenant Gruber (Guy Siner), sexy waitress and Rene’s lover Yvette Carte-Blanche (Vicki Michelle), Resistance agent (and also Rene’s lover!) Mimi Lebonq (Sue Hodge), and Colonel Von Strohm’s secretary Helga Geerhart (Kim Hartman) will all make guest appearances at an event expected to attract up to 10,000 visitors over the two weekends.
It all sounds very jolly, but remember. Hitler had earmarked Bridgnorth to be his headquarters in occupied Britain.
