    I can understand that, B43, especially if you were out in yesterday's weather. Unfortunately, any post in what is perceived to be a public service will be paid less well than a broadly comparable role in the private sector. Any chance of moving sideways where you are now into the warm and dry?

    Hi CS,

    I'm working on exactly that strategy at the moment, it is working, but slowly. I have to be careful not to work my way too far from my main skill set, otherwise I might find myself out of a job altogether!! Seriously though I would like to make a change, perhaps to see out my last 10 years or so before I retire.

    I wish you the best in that endeavor, B43!

    CS, thanks for posting these opportunities up so regularly.

    It is something I would love to do professionally but I don't have the requisite qualifications - I just enjoy doing research.

    Love the avatar - I have the Goon Show scripts book so I think I know where you found Bloodnok's portrait.

    No worries, Mike. You are the first person on the forum to recognise and comment on his distinguished visage :)

    CS,

    I always take time to read through your Museum vacancy Posts.

    I was particularly taken with the Lancashire Job you advertised. Lancashire Infantry Museum, Preston: Assistant Curator.

    Had I still lived in Fulwood, Preston, I would have applied. It is situated in the old Local Vehicle Licencing Office buildings ajacent to the Jail on Stanley street.

    Regards and Keep up the good work.

    I think No. 1 is Eccles, No. 2 Minnie Bannister and Bluebottle?, No 3 Henry Crun, No.4 Don't know, Nos. 5 and 6 Neddy Seagoon, No. 7 Don't know.

    How's that, Mike?

    Actually CS, even with the book in front of me it isn't totally clear.
    Scans of the pages attached.


    Referring to images in my previous:

    Goon 1 is Bluebottle.

    Goon 2 is either Minnie Bannister and Henry Crun or Bannister and Seagoon.

    Goon 3 seems to be Moriarty.

    Goon 4 seems to be Grytpype-Thynne.

    Goon 5 is a different version of Major Dennis Bloodnok.

    Goon 6 is William 'Mate' Cobblers.

    And my favourite:
    Goon 7 is 'The famous' Eccles, so clearly drawn unlike most of the others. I had to doctor that one a bit to avoid giving it away.

    These sketches were apparently drawn by Spike, Harry and Peter on the back of the scripts during rehearsals or even perhaps during broadcasts.

    Lots more in the book if you want to see them.
