DO YOU know who the mysterious Billy Tuppence is?

Dartmouth Apprentice and Dartmouth Museum are offering a special prize to anyone who has the answer.

'Billy Tuppence' is a man in a picture in the museum's photo archive wearing posh clothes but with old shoes and a tattered bag.

The two charitable organisations are holding a special fundraising quiz on October 17, hosted by historian and writer Phil Scoble when there will be a prize for the team who can answer the most questions correctly and a special additional prize for anyone who can give proof of who Billy Tuppence is.

"We have been searching for the answer to this question for months," said Tim Trent of Dartmouth Museum.

Dartmouth Apprentice manager Nina Stanesby said: "We are going to have a very fun night with a lot of friends — and it seemed like the perfect time to make a public appeal for information on the illusive Billy."

If you think you know who Billy Tuppence is, go along to the Dartmouth Apprentice on October 17 for the joint fundraiser.

Tickets are £12.50 and you have to book in advance, and the ticket price includes a hot buffet.
