Robin Edgar was born in 1936. His father, James Gibson ‘Jock’ Edgar had penned this in his son’s diary in 1950 whilst living in Tripoli:
Perhaps that started something, as there are now a huge number of penned poems, ditties and songs in his own files and scattered around in the collections of others. The Worst Verse in Billingshurst – A Fiver’s Worth of Verse from Billingshurs’ anthology was published locally in 1992 to raise funds for a Romanian Orphanage. Another followed in 1996 – An Even Worse Sequel to Worst Verse. With a letter received from the Queen Mum at Clarence House, these were received in the vein intended.
This is an attempt to unite them under one virtual roof, available for all. If you have a penned ode by Robin, please email it if you can’t see it on this site. (if it is handwritten, please do try and photograph it.)
