Main page / Bibliography / Who is who / "Stinker" Pinker

Rev. Harold P. "Stinker" Pinker, Oxford friend of Bertie, attended Magdalen College where he boxed and played Rugby football; later played Rugby for England. Curate at Totleigh-in-the-Wold and engaged to Stiffy Byng in The Code of the Woosters and Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, which makes him an adjunct member of the Totleigh Towers gang. A large, lumbering, Newfoundland puppy of a chap who is graceful only on the football field, he upsets furniture whenever he moves about a room. Steals Constable Eustace Oates' helmet for Stiffy in The Code of the Woosters. Major Plank gives him a vicarage in Hockley-cum-Meston in Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves in order to obtain his services as a prop forward on the local Rugby team (the new vicarage allows him to marry Stiffy). Still giving satisfaction on Major Plank's team in Aunts Aren't Gentlemen.
