William George Elliott in Gosport - between at the end of the 1950's and in the middle of the 1960's

from An octogenarian's personal life story, pages 95-96:

[The listening experience is from a section of the memoir about retirement]


On one side of us as neighbours was a family with whom we became very friendly […] He was a school teacher, more of a sober kind of man but his wife was directly opposite—jovial, laughing and occasionally singing away to herself when he was at school […] She was a lovely singer also, with a strong contralto voice.
