David Charles Prowse MBE (1963–2020)

Green Cross Code

Being a child of the sixties I remember him well. The Green Cross Code Man appeared to British children in the late 70s when road safety was a popular topic. With a uniform consisting of a tight white hero suit, with a green cross and large Gary Glitter-esque shoulder pads, the The Green Cross Code man was played by Bristol born David Prowse, who also later appeared as Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies.
