Meldrum, Tiny. Tiny Meldrum was created by Alec Glanville and appeared in Death Goes Ashore (1936) and Body in the Trawl (1938).

Tiny Meldrum is a Great Detective. Meldrum is an ex-public school boy and a Naval veteran during the Great War. After the war ended he became a Rootless Veteran and moved into a converted fishing smack, the Sister Jane, and began working as a consulting detective. He is un-self-conscious, very private, has a “scornful tongue,” and a “barrier of cynical reserve, hard to penetrate or surmount, with which he hedges himself in.” Meldrum is Watsoned by former school chum Inspector Muller of Scotland Yard.
