Cheeky's Week artwork credit reassigned

I have changed the artist credit that I previously referred to as Frank McDiarmid pencils 2. For reasons which I explain here, I have redesignated this artist as Unknown Cheeky Artist 1.

This reassignment of artwork credits has necessitated updates of a number of posts, the most significant being;

...and the remainder...

Please note that the credit Frank McDiarmid pencils is, I believe, still valid so remains unchanged. That artist combination was responsible for 9 renditions of Harry between 07 January 1978 and 18 August 1979, 8 of which conformed (more or less) to Frank's original version of the character. The first occasion on which Harry was rendered by Frank McDiarmid pencils does actually cause me a little concern, as Harry is depicted with his face obscured by the camera and flash (see below), which could mean that the inker chose to obscure Harry's face as he/she had no visual reference for Harry's design (Harry had made his first appearance, drawn by Frank McDiarmid, the previous week), and if that was the case then obviously the page wasn't based on Frank's pencils. But at the moment I'm choosing to believe that Frank did the pencils and decided to emphasise the flash in this panel because the character's name is Flash Harry, so I don't think there's sufficient evidence to revise my opinion that this is in fact Frank's pencils being inked by another hand.
