Arise, Sir David!

There were three brothers from North London. Arthur White became an actor, appearing in the early Crossroads soap opera, TV shows and, more recently, as PC Ernest 'Ernie' Trigg in the records office in "A Touch of Frost". David White also became an actor appearing in many famous comedy programmes and also with his brother in "A Touch of Frost". The third brother, Jason White, tragically died at an early age, so we will never know if he would have become an actor too! However, his brother David decided as a tribute to take the stage name David Jason. So his name lived on in memorable classics such as Only Fools and Horses and Open All Hours.

Yesterday, David Jason was knighted by the Queen. As Sir David White, with Lady White (who was only one day as Mrs.White, as they were married the day before!) at his side, he stood in Buckingham Palace courtyard telling the TV crews that it was a very enjoyable day indeed.

Congratulations, Sir David!
