Ed note: We were recently informed by Ms Taylor that Edna Bedford has passed away. Readers will recall her letter which we published on this website several months ago. The following is the letter David Saville wrote in reply:
“Dear Ms Taylor
I was very touched by your note and of course the enclosed card [see below] which we are putting on our website.
I am also informing the dozen or so former Linthorpe Junior pupils in Israel who have had very fond memories.
To us of course she was always Miss Bedford - only recently did we hear about the Edna name. We will always remember how she always went out of her way to keep an eye on her young Jewish pupils and these feelings were reciprocated and have lasted many years, "out of mind and out of sight". Perhaps if there is some kind of Memorial gathering, you could pass on these thoughts from the Holy and hopefully Peaceful Land.”
