a friend of Bertie Wooster's
since boyhood who was at Magdalen with him. Frequently
mentioned as the fellow Drone who bet Bertie he couldn't
swing himself across the swimming pool at the Drones by the
rings and looped back the last ring, giving Bertie no option
but to drop into the water in faultless evening dress (some
time prior to the action of Jeeves and the Yule-Tide Spirit).

singing "Sonny Boy" at the Oddfellows' Hall in Bermondsey

again with Angela Travers, Aunt Dahlia's daughter. Still
betrothed to Angela in The Ordeal of Young Tuppy,

father invented a headache cure marketed as Runkle's Magic
Midgets, which has earned huge profits for Runkle Enterprises.
