So far I've not found a Fiona Kendall. Do you have any more information on this subject?
I have an even vaguer memory of this being discussed here ages ago, probably on the pre-crash boards. Fascinating, though.
Just found this Graham. Apparently there was actually a framed photograph of McCarthy. I canít recall if this has appeared in any books though?
