Also known as – Linda Ward and Linda Broom
Linda is another of those quintessential Spick and Span girls about whom ToCo tells us very little.
Robin Brewster informs us she came from Bournemouth (so she was almost certainly a Ken Howard find), was a secretary-receptionist, a winner of a Bournemouth Beauty competition (dreaming of stardom!) and was 19 years old when she first appeared in Span 109. But we don’t need him to tell us that she had a pretty face, long legs, a biteable bum and a sensational figure.
In her 21 appearances, she is seen in the usual stockings and suspenders, but also in the dreaded directoire knickers (a gift from her grandma according to Brewster in Span 110. Why should a grandma want to give a 19-year-old a pair of DKs, also known as ‘passion killers’ in those days?), and just a hint of St. Trinian’s when she wears a straw boater in a couple of shoots.
We are also told that she met a lucky fella on holiday in Spain, who she later went on to marry.
