About this recording

Listen to Morris Pottinger reminisce about his early schooldays. Although Morris started school on the island of Stronsay, Orkney, his recollections will trigger memories of shared wooden desks, slates, ink wells, coal fires and the strict discipline associated with education in the thirties and forties.
