Robin is a gluttonous boy and member of The Coot Club who lives in Acle. He is given fourpence to telephone Dr Dudgeon's house to warn of the Margoletta's approach (CC10) but spends the money on a lot of dud bananas and gets stomach ache (CC13). During the cruise of the Teasel Mrs Barrable buys him a slab of chocolate cream (CC18). Later that year, Robin resigns from the Coot Club due to the casting off scandal (BS17) and Joe observes He won't get no more stomach-aches out of being a Coot.
