78 rpm record made for Gus Davenport by Bill Stickland and Poppy Gwen

Gus Davenport fell ill in 1937 and family friends Bill Stickland and his wife Poppy Gwen sent him a cheerful self-recorded message to wish him well. Side 1: recorded by the Wessex Wizard, Bill Stickland. Side 2: recorded by Poppy Gwyn. Side 2 has bubbled and is now unplayable. Fortunately, before this bubbling occurred, both sides were transcribed onto a cassette tape and then into an MP3 file, so the Davenport Collection also has an electronic file of the content.
