Meeting Stig[]

Gertrude had initially played one of the schoolgirls in A Hard Day's Rut who steals The Rutles' wallets while they're sleeping on the train ride back to London. The Rutles song Lady O'Hara is about her.

She would not meet Stig again until 1968. Fans all over the world thought that Stig was dead. Stig had in fact been far from dead, but not far from Esher where Gertrude lived. The two had fallen into bed together, stayed there for a while and were married after that. Their son Mhani was born in 1978.
