I just read a message from On the Buses Official Facebook Page:

https://www.facebook.com/OnTheBusesTV/

It comes some great sadness to bring so very sad news, Harry 'Aitch Fielder On the Buses extra and long life supporter of the On the Buses events has passed last night. This is a shock to us all and at this time our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Harry Fielder was one of the most famous British film and TV extras, with at least one Avengers episode among his many screen appearances.

Split! - Guard



RIP

That's terrible news. I used to chat with him on Facebook. His book was a great read - what a career! Rest in peace, Aitch. Thank you for all great TV and films, it was a joy to see you every time.

His wife Mary, who predeceased him, was a double for Linda Thorson (I think in Wish You Were Here).

Yes, Wish You Were Here Call Sheet pointed that Mary was as a stand-in in this episode, although she might not have appeared on screen.

It's interesting to learn over the years how parts of families and married couples have been on the series. For example, thanks to Mike Richadson's book, we learned that Decima Rickard was on The Avengers (at least in one episode - All Done with Mirrors - as a stand-in for Linda Thorson) and more recently we found out thanks to the newspaper Midweek Observer and Gazette (20 May 1969), that her sister Elaine Rickard was also on the series - she participated in many Avengers episodes as a stand-in for Linda Thorson and extra.
