Served with the British Army in France during World War I.
Diminutive, bald British comic actor, the son of an accountant. On stage from 1911, he was chiefly famous for his mild-mannered characterisations in the eleven Aldwych farces (1925-33), appearing alongside Tom Walls and Ralph Lynn. These were later successfully transferred from stage to screen. Hare also enjoyed success on the small screen late in life as Archdeacon Henry Blunt, the lead character of BBC's All Gas and Gaiters (1966).
