Thread Name: Folklore: Is this an urban myth?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Is this an urban myth?
Be difficult to do any of that, leeneia: she's been dead for about 30 years. My memories of her go back to childhood & teenage visits with my mother, who died in 1967. Obviously it was not implied that the wife literally remained waiting in Leics Sq station. As to his underwear &c; I should take it that he had left a case at a left luggage somewhere. It was presumably all planned, to meet his mistress & vanish with her or whevs.

If it happened at all, that is.

Peggy was always a bit cagey about the names -- seemed to feel she owed some sort of confidentiality or something.

It still feels urban mythical to me -- except that this dies seem the only version of the tale; which, in myth or folklore terms, would be unusual to say the least.
