R. Hodgkinson (Inf.)
[Guysersing at Langley, Derbys.]
Com. 17th Jan.1972
Letter from Langley, Derbys. concerning the writer's father George Hodgkinson
(1879-1969) who often told of bygone Christmases when he went "Guysering".
[This would probably have been in the 1890s.] Fragments of text are quoted.
The characters included Robin Hood (dressed in Lincoln green, having borrowed
his father's regalia from the A.O. of Forresters), St. George and Belzebub. One
sentence appears to refer to a chapbook - "I do believe there is a paperback
called 'Peace Pie' which gives a lot of information."
