So No.2 Was Fit For Further Term
The Tally Ho once asked "Is No.2 Fit For Further Term?" and apparently he was, having been returned to the village for ‘The General’, and the experiment of Speedlearn the way he was. But is this No.2 really any different from all the others, the three exceptions obviously being the new No.2 of ‘Free For All,’ No.2 of ‘Dance of the Dead’ and ‘Many Happy Returns,’ plus one interim No.2 of ‘Its Your Funeral.’ All the male No.2's wear the same uniform complete with plain double breasted blazer as can be observed, and all wear a signet ring on the little finger of his left hand. Well all bar the new No.2 of ‘Arrival’, he is seen wearing a piped blazer the same as worn by No.6, and the only one to do so. Perhaps he was trying to be different, showing individualistic tendencies, no wonder he didn't last more than five minutes!
It is possible that the face of No.2 might change, but all the different characteristics are of the same man, or in a couple of cases, woman. How do I account for Mrs' Butterworth-No.2? I don't, after all I can't account for everything, only for so much. The rest I leave to you.
Be seeing you
