Now What Do You Say, Eh?

Recommended Posts

I recently found this ditty in my American grandmothers papers.  It was written by C. Leslie of 3 Gordon Road, Exeter.

Although it was probably written during the war, she visited Devon in 1923-24 and may have picked it up then.

Dear Harper,

 

May I use this 'little ditty' for one of my articles for the Dutch Western Front Associations? I will, of course acknowledge you as the finder of it in your garnsmothers belongings and the authorship of C. Leslie.

 

Cheers,

Fred

Yes. Please do.

I am glad that is of use/interest to some one.

Thank you Harper. It could almost be explained as a light-hearted reply to the fierce German Hymn of Hate!

 

Cheers,

Fred

According to Besley's Directory of Exeter and Suburbs, 1916-1919, that address was the home of Mrs Helen Hutchings. I wonder if she kept it as a boarding house?
