LATEST off-the-wall yedscratter comes from a gaggle of gulpers from the Moss Bank pub.

They ask does anyone know who was the last knocker-up in St Helens; and can they name the year when he hung up his window-tapping pole for the last time?

If any of our veterans could provide an answer and perhaps even enclose a little tale from those days of the 'human alarm clock,' then both the ale-gulping gang and myself would be most obliged.
