Today’s question is from Meera. Identify and come up with a literary connection.
Meera writes, “Visual 1 is Sir Pelham Warner, known affectionately as Plum Warner and the Grand Old Man of English cricket.
Visual 2 is Percy Jeeves British first-class cricketer from England, playing 50 matches for Warwickshire County Cricket Club from 1912 to 1914. I quote from a Cricinfo profile, “When P G Wodehouse racked his
brains to come up with a name for his uber-butler, he recalled the Warwickshire fast bowler with the whippy action”.
Visual 3 is PG Wodehouse.
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was also known affectionately as Plum. Please do read the delightfully well written profile-brimming with elegant prose-from Cricinfo here. http://content-ind.cricinfo.com/england/content/player/15666.html
Although it says “The flesh-and-blood Jeeves may never have attempted to dissuade friends from wearing lilac spats….”. However, we have always held that the spats were mauve. And mauve is not quite lilac.”
