Major Plank
Main page / Bibliography / Who is who / Major Plank

Major "Barmy" Plank, landed proprietor at Hockley-cum-Meston, Gloucestershire, invests a vicarage in Stinker Pinker to obtain a prop forward for the local Rugby football team in Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, where he accuses Bertie of trying to chisel him out of five quid. Friend of Pop Cook and patient of onetime schoolmate Jimpy Murgatroyd in Aunts Aren't Gentlemen. An elderly one-time explorer with a square empire-building face, much tanned. Suffers from malaria, picked up in equatorial Africa, which affects his memory. Not to be confused with Major Brabazon-Plank.
