Byron Rogers wrote a collection of articles on tracking down and meeting an array of quirky, whimsical and eccentric individuals, some of which were printed in the Sunday Telegraph a number of years ago. He did a piece on Doug and Pam called The Icon and Dambuster. He also wrote one on the photographer Jean Straker called Squire among the Pin-ups. Both articles are collected in the book On the Trail of the Last Human Cannonball and Other Small Journeys in Search of Great Men. The book is a wonderful read. Available from Wordery.
