There was a boy at my school called Dickon Hares. I don't know what else to say about him, other than it really was his name, and it did sound exactly as you imagined it would when read out in the register.

I saw him and his brother on Knightmare, the old kids show, and according to an interview of one of the cast of the show, they won it, cos he remembers when Dickon found a trumpet, he shouted "Dickon's got the horn".

Hello, your friendly editors here. Oooh, we agonised over this one. Truth? Kate Thornton-esque apocryphal nostalgia a la Seaman Staines and Master Bates? If you know any more about this, PLEASE write in. -The editors.

It might very well be true:

And I quote, "Dungeoneer Dickon from Team 6 unlocks Motley from the stocks, then an Ogre appears."
You can even listen to it here: http://knightmare.v21hosting.co.uk/clips/series4/4mot_ogre.rm

Thanks Nick! And thanks Dickon!

Well, it's only partly true. Dickon got the crown, not the horn.
