It's Inexplicable!

   Shakespeare summed it all up, so they say. The seven ages of man, which is life as No.2 takes No.6 through parts of his own life. From the infant mewling and puking in the nurses arms, to the point of death. One age of man was not re-enacted between No.2 and No,.6 in that Embryo Room, and that is the 'lover,' and for obvious reasons. But one part of the Prisoners life re-enacted is wrong, that of the soldier. No.6 would have been far too young to have taken part in WWII. Although McGoohan did have a bit-part in the 1955 film The Dam Busters. I wonder if that's the reason No.6 and No.2 re-enacted the roles of a bomber crew as part of the Prisoners/McGoohan's life? After all, Once Upon A Time is part biographical of McGoohan's own life.
