His late daughter, the Hon, Betty Clay, informed me some years ago that BP himself rhymed it was Noel (or soul if you like). However, her husband, Gervas, always pronounced it as rhyming with towel.


The ditty is:


Man, Matron, Maiden,

Please rhyme it with Baden.

And as for Powell

Please rhyme it with Noel.
