Historical Note: Young Gerry didn't look anything like that. One of my better mates at a junior school in Upton, on the posh edge of Slough (yes, there was such an area in the 1960s), was one of Gerry's head model-makers and blow-it-up-with-some-lighter-fuel-afterwards effects men; arranged for us kids to visit the "studio" on Slough Trading Estate off the A4 Bath Road, he did. Loved it. The Mergirl Marina and Lady Penelope to a 9- or 10-year-old - phwoar!
