My comments:
The tattered song book is a link to my primary school, St. Stephen's Junior School, Worcester and is most certainly the one that was used in Miss Pethord's music class. From it, I learned my first songs outside the family. I acquired this link to the past in a Malvern second-hand book-shop for a modest 15 p. It originally cost 2s. 0d. Contents:
  1. The Bay of Biscay (English)
  2. A hunting we will go (English
  3. John Peel (English)
  4. All through the night (welsh)
  5. Scots, wha hae (Scottish)
  6. The Oak and the Ash (English)
  7. Early One Morning (English)
  8. Oh, dear! what can the matter be (English)
  9. The British Grenadier (English)
  10. The Ash Grove
  11. Good King Wencesla (Traditional)
  12. The First Nowell) (Traditional)
