Colin Henderson in Norfolk - 1946
from Had I But Known, page 37:
[The author married John in October 1937; their son Colin, born in December 1939, was killed by his father in the late 1940s / early 1950s]
When he [Colin] was about seven and a half, he had a great longing to play the violin, and if a violin was playing on the radio, he would ask us to be quiet and would listen intently. After a time, when I felt he was really interested, I bought him a half size instrument, and he had lessons with a music teacher, herself a keen violinist. He was keen to learn, and enjoyed his lessons.
