I.T.Jones Collection, Com. 8th Jan.1982, Ref.L1-3

Ethel Glossop age 77 from Arnold rang the phone-in to talk about her husband Fred Glossop’s memories of Plough Monday in Cotgrave. She read parts of a text up to the Recruiting Sergeant’s first speech that were exactly as the copy of the Cotgrave play in the Peter Millington Collection that had been remembered and written by Fred Glossop.

When phoned back on 13th January 1982, she explained that her husband, also age 77, had a stroke 6 months previously and was still in hospital. He came from Cotgrave and although she didn’t know what they did on Plough Monday, they used to go to several villages and to the mental hospital in Radcliffe.
