A young National Service on leave in June 1956 I arrived at Preston Station at 0600 in the morning and sought a taxi to take me back to barracks. A young woman was also seeking a taxi, so we shared one. She was smartly dressed and carefully made up, despite the early hour, and we chatted a little, to the point that she let me know she was a singer by profession and when I asked her name she told me she was Edna Savage. I did know of her, having heard her most successful record. Shortly after we arrived at my destination and I got out. I recall shaking her hand and wishing her all the best in her career. Obviously, I have never forgotten this brief encounter. I was posted abroad and never heard of her again, till I looked her up on the internet and was sad to learn that she died so young after so many marriages and the decline of her career. I recall that there was something a little wistful about her, even a touch of sadness. She was also so attractive and immedi9ately likeable. I shall never forget that short meeting.
