An MS Voice from the Past
Whilst clearing out some documents in her house , Jackie Bates , one of the members of our group , found an old poem written by a friend of her Grandmother about 60 years ago . It is clear from the poem the lady who wrote the poem was a member of the local group going back to the 1950's and 1960's . The poem talks about the MS Society group being formed in the area and asks for people to donate money to the society and is written in a strong Yorkshire dialect.
The poem does use some wording/terminology that would be deemed unacceptable today but would have been common place terminology in the 1950's/1960s and socially acceptable at the time of writing .
