Talent Contest . . . - a Memory of Wimbledon.

On holiday from Inverness in 1952, my mate entered me in the Saturday night talent contest that was, I believe, held every Saturday then. I sang a brand new song called 'Luna Rosa' and went over very well. After all entrants had had a go, judged by audience applause a chap who had performed 'That Old Black Magic' and I were said to be a draw! So to decide which of us was the winner, both of us had to sing the same songs again! I WON!
The prize was a giant box of chocolates that I took home to my mother.
To say that I was chuffed would definitely be an understatement!
