*Mr. A. S. Huskinson (Inf.)
*Plough Monday Play - East Bridgford
E.L.Guilford Collection, Col. 1922, Ref.M99 09

*Full text (105 lines) of a Plough Monday Plough Lads' Play from East Bridgford, Notts., apparently being a collated version of the script in M99 13/1-6, collected from A.S.Huskinson by Gertrude Fox (see TD00755) and which ceased about 1914. The characters are: Tom Fool, Recruiting Sergeant, Farmer's Man/Ploughboy, Lady Bright, King or St. George, and Doctor.

This appears to be the version from which A.S.Buxton's copy was made (see TD00451). His copy includes a mis-transcript of "big XL" for "big 'ed" in the first line, and this mistake has also been propagated through to the copy in the M.W.Barley Collection.
