Mr. Mash Edit
Mr. Mash (Larry Martyn) was a Grace Brothers maintenance man. He was frequently reprimanded by Captain Peacock for appearing on the sales floor during business hours, but had no fear of his superiors. He had a thorough knowledge of store operations and was a union agitator. He often bragged of taking home much larger paycheques than the sales assistants due to overtime. He was rather weedy and class-conscious, and made sneering comments towards the sales staff.
Although his age is never mentioned, he must have been born during the early/mid 1920s, as he is old enough to have been part of the Armed Forces at the time of D-Day.[N 1]
