- "Tommy Jolys!...Hunting me with horns. I shall have something to say to him. He was always a noisy and ill-behaved little boy." (Maria Turner, PM27)
- His phone number on the card by the telephone at Beckfoot is "Fellside 75" (PP33) & (PM2).
- His actual rank as given on the card is "Lt.-Col." or Lieutenant-Colonel.
- He lives at the head of the lake, as Mrs Tyson says Before we'd get the word to the Colonel at head of the lake there'd be nowt left of our valley but ash and smoke (PP8).
- He is a shortish, stout man but has a big, carrying voice. When he demonstrates a long blast on his coach-horn he blew ... on ... and on ... and on, and only gets very red though Dick thinks that He'll burst (PM26). Dot found it hard to see the stout, white-moustached, bald-headed Colonel as the noisy and ill-behaved little boy that the GA remembers (PM28).
