    I still don't know who she is but I think this is a relative. She looks just like her especially the hat.

    Fairly easy one this time. (Errrmm, I think)

    Sadly, no longer with us.
    He died in 1992.

    Fine head of hair,
    but he ended up wearing a toupee.

    Madam, PLEASE!!!

    Hi All .

    That last one did my head in ... :crazy:

    Trouble was I am so used to seeing her as she is 'now'
    the younger version of her - it just simply didnt 'twig' with me
    till I worked more with the helpful and hinted clues given . :)

    I am both chuffed and relieved to have finally cracked it 'YAY' :D

    Its a great topic and thread for us all though :clap:
    A nice change to relax , have some fun , and try and crack the mystery faces .

    Now - for this next one - ermmm is it - Larry Grayson?

    Anna.

    I agree it is a good topic. :lol:
    That is why if you get it early, it helps to give others a daft clue .
    It Is UP to Wee Willie to give us this choice, :thumbup:

    Actually my wife and I were lucky enough to fly over a place "on a helicopter" which this person once was.This is not a clue,yet could be.

    Roy, :)

    On circumstantial evidence I am going to guess at Frankie Howerd.

    The evidence:

    He's dead.
    He died in 1992.
    Could well have worn a toupe for all I know.
    He did use to say things like Madam, PLEASE!!!

    I can certainly see the resemblence in his smile .

    Did he wear a toupe ? Maybe ?

    Yep I will go along with Frankie Howard too :thumbup:

    If it was Frankie Howard, that means I was lucky enough to fly over Pompeii,(The good old days when companies had staff perks.)

    Since I wrote the post above I have read a bio which does mention his toupe but I am still only about 90% certain and may well have to return the medal I was awarded.

    Stolen from Wikepedia:

    "museum of Howerd's collection of memorabilia and personal effects such as his false teeth and ill-fitting toupee to raise funds for charities."

    Apparently it's important that his name is spelled HowErd. I don't know why except that he especially changed it to make it so.

    Brilliant, Got to find out why. :)
    Things like this make this thread so interesting.

    I have mild dyslexia and thought Howerd was wrong when I copied it,so I kept changing it.(I am now over the moon).
