DrumavilleDave has it just about right but Bill Buterfield, who was the last Argus, continued into the early 1980s. I know because I worked alongside him for another newspaper. Lovely but cantankerous old chap - and he loved the club. In the bar, his cry was always "A Bell's please!" Liked his Scotch. When he retired the Argus pen-name disappeared and the first by-lined reporter took over - Geoff Storey.
