Snail of the Century artwork reassigned

Prior to writing my post on Snail of the Century I had believed that all the SotC strips were drawn by Frank McDiarmid. However while re-reading the series for research purposes it became apparent that artwork on one of the episodes was by Barrie Appleby, while a second was probably by Barrie rather than Frank.

This is the one that's unmistakably (except that I did mistake it) the work of Barrie...

Cheeky Weekly 13 October 1979

This one (from the following week's issue) is less obviously Barrie's work but I reckon the book pages in panel 2, the building in panel 3 and Dan-Dan in the final row are sufficiently Appleby-esque for me to make an attribution - it's a bit hard to use the manner of Cheeky's rendition to determine the artist, as the toothy funster is depicted as being uncharacteristically groomed, gleaming and not a little shocked by the whole cleaning experience.

Cheeky Weekly 20 October 1979

I don't need to change my SotC post as I had already reassigned the artwork credits for these episodes before embarking upon it, but I have had to update the following posts...
