#3: Author: Karry, Location: Stoke on TrentPosted: Mon Jul 03, 2006 1:16 pm When I was reading Highland Twins, i am sure that Grizel wasn't mentioned as the Music mistress but a Miss Ames(?). What happen to Grizel?
#4: Author: Ray, Location: Bristol, EnglandPosted: Mon Jul 03, 2006 4:19 pm Sounds like an EBDism - Grizel's definitely still at the school in Gay from China (she threatens to quit over Miss Bubb's interference) and she's teaching Lavender music in Lavender Laughs (I've just checked the transcript!).
Though quite WHY EBD would omit Grizel, even in error, is a little beyond my comprehension!
#5: Author: Pat, Location: DoncasterPosted: Mon Jul 03, 2006 8:30 pm The A-Z says that Grizel wasn't in Highland Twins. But she had to still be at the school, as she didn't go to NZ until after the war!
