The tale starts off in a really disagreeable approach. It disturbed this reader in 1965 as a lot then because it does now. Pon & Co. at Redclyffe station set upon Billy Bunter. No traditional rag this, it really is sadistic & malicious even by means of Ponsonby’s criteria.

It is quite unhappy, that just about two decades formerly, Bunter had entered the post-war booklet industry so triumphantly, just for him to depart it so pathetically.
He deserved a greater epitaph than this!
