John Le Mesurier before his off-screen death in 'Ripping Yarns: Roger of the Raj'
John Le Mesurier (1912 - 1983)
Ex-Mr. Hattie Jacques
Mr. Joan Le Mesurier
Father of Robin Le Mesurier
A Christmas Carol (1977) [Marley's Ghost]: Dies (off-screen) of unspecified natural causes, several years before the story begins; he appears as a ghost to Michael Hordern.

Ripping Yarns: Roger of the Raj (1979) [Colonel Runciman]: Commits suicide (off-screen) by shooting himself, after he violates upper-class tradition by making an impassioned speech against those traditions. We only hear the shot after he leaves the room. (Played for comic effect.)
