|Harry's first appearance|
|Different look for third appearance|
In the 27 May 1978 issue, Harry gave Cheeky a copy of The Mystery Comic (surprisingly not a photo of it).
Flash Harry was featured throughout Cheeky's Week in the comic dated 15 July 1978, as he followed the toothy funster around in the hope of obtaining a snap worthy of the local paper's prize for the most unusual photo of the week. Although a number of suitably extraordinary events occurred, for various unlikely reasons Harry was unable to obtain a picture, and in an ironic twist found himself the subject of the winning entry.
In the comic dated 16 September 1978, Frank McDiarmid introduced a differently-nosed Flash Harry, and Frank carried on drawing this new version of the silly snapper in all his subsequent work on the character, while other artists continued to draw the more generously-nosed Harry, as he had originally appeared.

|20 October 1979 - Mike Lacey, like all the artists other than Frank, continues to draw Harry with the original nose|
UPDATE 10 May 2012 - for information on how Flash Harry is the key to a reassignment of artist credits, please see here, and here.
