Memoranda

The final page in Peggy’s diary is ‘Memoranda’. There is quite a lot of writing on the page, so I’m splitting it into a few posts.

As we know, Peggy enjoyed listening to the gramophone. She used this page to make a note of records she wanted to buy, under the heading ‘Records required‘.
The block of text underneath is crossed out, presumably because she acquired the records she listed:

Ah! Sweet mystery of life – Nelson Eddy (from the musical Naughty Marietta)
I’m falling in love with someone – Nelson Eddy (from Naughty Marietta)
Tramp, tramp, tramp along the highway – Nelson Eddy (from Naughty Marietta)
‘Neath the southern moon – Nelson Eddy (from Naughty Marietta)
Cheek to cheek (from the musical Top Hat)
When the Guardsman started crooning on parade
Little golden locket
A thick, thick fog in London (a comedy song by Jack Payne).

Nelson Eddy was an American singer who was known for appearing in musicals and operas in the 1930s and 40s.
