Ridley was a prolific stage writer many years before he
joined the ranks of Dad's Army. Perhaps his most
successful play was "The Ghost Train",
which is still performed to this very day.
unfortunately had to sell most of his rights away to "The
Ghost Train", henceforth he never really made a
lot of money from its success. However, if he had lived,
he would probably be pleased to know that it is still very
popular into the 21st Century!
