Trumpton Firemen Names

Postby Courtjester » Fri Nov 25, 2011 6:28 pm

Hi there you quizzers are there any of you who can give me the correct names of the 6 firemen in the roll call on Trumpton. We gave an answer at a pub quiz only to be marked down for 1 wrong name. I was sure I was right, :?

We verified this one for Series 5 of 'Pointless'; our research showed the answers as...

Barney McGrew
Cuthbert
Dibble
Grubb
Pugh & Pugh (twins)

And, not mentioned in the "Firemen Ready" roll call, Captain Flack.

Sources: Cult Children's TV p306, Penguin TV Companion p134, http://www.theprezzyshop.co.uk/collecta ... wick19.php, and for the twins, see: http://www.t-web.co.uk/trump_gm.htm

Captain Flack & the roll call of...

Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb - the scansion is right at least

I tweaked my reply as the question in Pointless was to name the firemen characters in the show, rather than name those mentioned in the roll-call.

Thanks for the answers that was the answer I gave and it was marked as incorrect. The quizmaster said it starts with Hugh, Pugh etc. I know he has the fantastic book by Trevor Montague "The A-Z of almost Eveything" and sometimes takes his questions from there and it contains an incorrect list. :D
