My scrapbook had been pretty dormant the past two or three years, new content being mainly service sheets for funerals of members of the congregation where I’ve attended as church warden/verger/dogsbody.
One item that I will always appreciate is the regimental condolence card that the SLOB’s (Scarlet Lancers Old Boys) sent me after my Dad, Sunray, died on 16 January this year. A British Army cavalry regiment is truly a band of brothers.
The words on the inside of the card come from the regimental song, Old Stable Jacket. Sing mit!
Hello, Genossen. I stumbled across this rather haunting song, Am Fenster, by City, while looking for YouTube videos on the East-West German border. I think the music goes well with the scenes in the video.
Some of you may have been fans of Film ’79, ’80, ‘yy, etc, review programme, starring Barry Norman and Jonathan Ross. I was personally never a fan of the programme or the presenters. However, you may remember the theme tune, which was an instrumental of I Wish I Knew How It Would Be To Be Free, written by Billy Taylor.
