Robert Alan Monkhouse (1st June 1928 - 29th December 2003) was born in Beckenham, Kent, the son of a custard powder manufacturer. While still attending Dulwich College (at the same time as Denis Gifford), Monkhouse wrote for The Beano and The Dandy, and later drew for Hotspur, Wizard and Adventure, all published by D.C. Thomson of Dundee, and also created The Tornado for Oh Boy! from 1948 to 1951. His work appears — credited as RAM — in numerous Gerald G. Swan titles throughout this period. After completing his National Service, Monkhouse entered the entertainment business as an actor, presenter and stand-up comedian, and drifted away from the world of comics, a sad loss for the industry.
