A new facility from the website software will allow me to add audio clips to these pages.
As you may know, Geoffrey dictated his memos onto audio tapes, which were then transcribed into text, from which the book White Water Landings eventually emerged. For security, the tapes were also recorded onto digital files. These are completely unedited at present. There are little touches like Geoffrey saying “Thanks, love,” and the chink of a teaspoon against a cup and saucer, suggesting he’d just been brought a cup of tea! The grandfather clock occasionally chimes in the background. And sometimes, Geoffrey pauses, stutters, repeats or corrects himself, or hums and hahs.
But I think it would be charming to have a few of his stories here for you to listen to.
If you have any particular segments you’d like to hear, add them in the comments.
