Nottinghamshire Archives Collection, Written 12th Mar.1960, Ref.DD121/1/13, 6pp.
Entry to an essay competition on old village life at East Bridgford, Notts. It Includes the following (pp.5-6);
"Plough Monday would see the ploughmen and waggoners going their rounds with a Mumming play. One of my earliest memories is of their visit, but I was much too scared by their masks to do more than peep from behind my mother's skirts. I vaguely recollect St. George and Doctor who announced that he could cure.'The itch, the pitch, the palsy and gout,
Pains within and pains without.'"
