From Pauline Wright of Erpingham, 2006                 CH B1-3-23a)

'My parents kept the pub [Tuttington Ship], so we used to have that on a Saturday night, all the music . . . They would never call time. They never did call time. I should think when people got sick of drinkin' and playin' they went, and that was it.'

Talking about John Cooper of Sustead who played the 'Old Out and Homer' - a melodeon.:

'[He] played at my Mum and Dad's wedding, and my parents had been married years and years and he still had the same hat on! What he had at my mother's wedding. A brown velvet hat, that never did come off his head, I don't think!'
