As I child I saw a little Australian film called Storm Boy which featured a pelican called Mr Percival. I loved that film so much and the memory of it has stayed with me for 30 years I can’t believe I just said that!. Storm Boy, Fingerbone Bill and Mr Percival, every pelican from that point became a “Mr Percival”.
I’ve also never forgotten The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith but that’s an entirely different memory……!!
