I remember watching this series the first time round in the mid 90’s and am working through it again. Still find it enjoyable .
Just watched one where Martin Jarvis played a British Major and noticed that the Union Flag on his uniform was missing the cross of St Patrick. The troubles were still going on at that time – did the writers think Northern Ireland would have joined the Irish Republic by the 2060’s I wonder? Ironically, it may be the cross of St Andrew that disappears in the next few years (I hope not though, and I am Scottish…)
