One of the more unusual gifts, and no less welcome for that, received was this remarkable vintage French horn that has been converted into a lamp. It now takes pride of place in our front reception room. Sarah was also responsible for the acquisition of two extremely valuable and very rare books.
I was also fortunate to receive a most excellent print of this very early self-portrait by Alan Bennett whose dry wit, humour and observation is legendary. I find this self-portrait curiously appealing.
Upon reflection, it must have been somewhat prior to 1955 when I was in Skegness as a young child.
Arthur went to the trouble of making me a birthday card on which he painted a scene in watercolours.
