Puppet, Geologists' Dinner

BGS image ID: P824223
This puppet is one of several used for the play "Only a Question of Time" by G A Kellaway which was performed at the Geologists' Dinner of 1953. The characters in the play included "Dai Atom", "Charlie Crinoid", "The Devil" and "The Survey Cat". It is thought that this particular puppet is "The Director" and was based on William Pugh who was the Director of the Geological Survey at the time.
