My mother still uses it occassionally, so I can only surmise that it was a character who was famous at the time. However, there is a Gordon Bennett Memorial Hall in Thurcroft, South Yorkshire (my school was in Dinnington, South Yorkshire) which was built in the mid-eighties. Who it is named after I do not know, but it may provide another launch-pad for further research! (ed: So we still don't know who Gordon Bennett was.
