Ben the Tramp. Ben the Tramp was created by J. Jefferson Farjeon (X. Crook, Inspector Kendall) and appeared in nine novels from 1926 to 1952, beginning with No. 17.
Ben the Tramp is a lower-class Brit who intermittently works for the Merchant Marine or anyone else who will hire him. He is gritty, resourceful, indigent, and speaks with a pronounced accent: “Not ‘arf! Yer ain’t got sich a thing as a leg o’beef on yer, I s’pose?” He also solves the crimes which he discovers in his wanderings.
