I had a lovely call from Ralph who was wanting a copy of a song that was published in The School Magazine that he had performed for his class when he was in Year 4. The truly extraordinary thing was that Ralph was in Year 4 in 1946 and this song and his performance was a memory that he cherished from his childhood. It was made all the more special because his grandfather had taught him to play the music on his violin.
I was able to provide Ralph with a copy of the music from the 1946 edition of The School Magazine to help keep that memory alive. A special moment in my work day. I wonder if other readers from long ago or not so, might like to also share a special memory from their time as young readers of The School Magazine we would certainly love to hear from you.
