She did n'all :-)

At Prep school I won the annual Latin prize. Prize - a book of your choice. The headmaster was almost disconsolate when I asked for "The Complete Molesworth" - but bless him, got it for me.

Extraordinary body of work, Searle. St. Trinians quite magnificent of course, and exquisitely translated to the big screen. Mind you, Alastair Sim along with Tommy Cooper can still make me laugh without uttering a word, and Joyce Grenfell bless her I just adore.

The Reel Molesworth Twitter feed has moments of joy, especially St. Custard's trips to Glasto
