Welcome to frank bellamy - the checklist

Frank returned to working, in 1947, after leaving the Army, at Blamire's Studio, Kettering. The local studio gave him the opportunity to show his talents on - primarily - cartoons in both the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph but also the Kettering Leader and Guardian (incorporating the Northamptonshire Advertiser) where he did a run of one shot gags to accompany a gardening column "Gardening notes" by "Riston" or "Ristone" and occassional other work.
