Judy?


What's up with that nickname? Is it explained in the book?

Great to see a post on this graveyard-like board!

Here's the explanation from Chapter Two:

Wags were fond of explaining how he came by his nickname, back in the nineties, when he had been housemaster of Outram's, a post he had relinquished in favour of Carter on his official retirement. It appeared that Outram's was cock-house that particular year and were expected to win the house cup for rugby, but their final game against Havelock's showed a lamentable lack of form. Cordwainer, disgusted by their poor performance, trotted up and down the touchline shouting encouragement to their rivals, who finally won both match and trophy. Cordwainer's own fifteeen were so outraged by this treachery that they styled him Judas, softened, over the years, to Judy.
