I never knew Frank Randle came from Adpull. Half my family lived there, and no one ever referred to it even though I was well aware of the comic.

I presume the artist Arthur Delaney was his son.

There was a plaque on St John’s School in New Springs dedicated to Frank Randle. Frank lived close by.
I think the plaque was removed when the School was closed.
