  1. A Song By Friday (not Hetty’s Hands obviously) runs in Judy 1246 (Nov. 26 1983) – 1254 (Jan. 21 1984). This is a repeat of the same title, albeit two instalments shorter, that ran in Judy 680 (Jan. 20 1973) – 690 (Mar. 31 1973).

  2. Yes, you are quite right. I can’t blame tiredness in the British Library because as I have all those issues in house I didn’t need to consult them there. Must have been tiredness here. The source for the story incidentally was Hickory Dick – The Singing Hobo in The Wizard in 1950.
