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.
