The Corpseman again!!

Bob Connolly has written to The Prescotian about the famous cartoon that was printed in the annaul PGS Journal in the early seventies, ” Re ‘The Corpseman 1975?’ Press article. ‘Corpseman’ was a Creepy Tales comic strip by Terry McDonnell in the 1972 Prescotian. He credited it to an original idea by me, but the concept of a death-dealing undertaker anti-superhero was all his, although inspired in some way by my interest in graveyards, Victorian statuary and undertaker fashion. I suppose this book could be described as a long-awaited sequel: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Over-Your-Dead-Body-history/dp/1517763630

Wanted: A PGS Bow Tie

The Editor was not aware that there was such an article as a PGS Bow Tie!

However, The Prescotian  has received an appeal for details of one such item from Gary Hogan, who left in 1975.

Gary writes, “I am attending a party in September with about a dozen of my old school friends
It is black tie and I was wondering:-
a ) whether there are any (old) PGS boys bow ties in existence which I could purchase? or
b) whether there is a manufacturer I could contact to make some for me?
Many thanks
Gary Hogan”
