Alfred Leete was a local artist who drew the famous First World War recruiting poster 'Your Country Needs You'. He later published A Book of Dragons, featuring a popular cartoon character 'Dennys the Rouge Dragon', recalled in the name of this Wetherspoon pub.
Alfred, always called 'A', was 11 when his father's ill health forced the family to give up farming in Northants and move south. They came to Weston in 1893 and started working in the hotel business. 'A' had a talent and was determined to pursue it. After school he went to Bristol, and then London, hawking his drawings, but he had to take other work to survive. He eventually got accepted by a magazine and became a regular contributor to London Opinion, among others.
