Spotted a little goof


There's a scene when "Judy" reads out the names of pupils and says "Featherstonehaugh". This upper class name is pronounced Fanshawe.

I noticed that. However I wonder if it could be reverse snobbery: maybe he knows it's pronounced Fanshawe but perversely pronounces it as it is spelled, almost using it as a nickname.

Probably just his teasing the boy a bit - like those who called Mainwaring "Main-ware-ing" intstead of "Mannering" in Dad's Army.
