Yerright, of course, Mr. D, but doesn't "Doolally Tap" sound like cockney rhyming slang, same as "Pony and trap"?

My father's side of the family used to say to someone who got something wrong "You're like a wooden man made of smoke".

Or of a clever person "He's half way there and back again, he is".

And my mother's favourite saying was "I'll give y'a thick ear across yer backside, if yer not careful!"
