      Here’s the answer to a question… “Cockrobin”

      Now here’s the question that had been asked… “What’s that up my bottom Batman?”

    Think Phantom was in vogue back then

      Pen: Phantom was the go in the 50’s for PP, even though I lived in a very small community far from the city, I was able to obtain the Phantom rings (by post), one silver with red eyes and one rubber type for stamping the skull on stuff. Next cab off the rank was Daniel Boone coonskin hats, all the rave at my two teacher little primary school in those days.

        PP, only the rich kids in my class got Davy Crockett hats. (I think there were two of them.)

        As for the Phantom comics. Not only were they better yarns, they were better value for money. I seem to recall that there were more frames per page than on other (‘lesser’) comics.

        Cliff: Was the same at my little bush school there were two ‘rich’ kids who had all the gear, whilst the rest of us looked on. Didn’t bother us much, there was still plenty to do in the sticks to keep us amused.

        You lucky bugger, a two teacher primary school. Mind you the one I attended for a little while had twelve pupils, six with non reflective skins who all went on to become ordinary decent people just like the rest of us, an overgrown slit trench, a horse paddock, a medicine ball, exercise mat, stuffed platypus, and a sketch of a finger cherry bush complete with fruit since eating finger cherry fruit in the wrong season sends you blind.
