Scrapbook: Memory

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!

Have a brotherly day, won’t you!


Mach Mal Lauter!

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.

I myself like the instrumental version.

Some might like the Nina Simone sung version.

Which version do you prefer?

Have a free day, won’t you!
