This content is elegible for transcription
Did you call Michael or Mike? Michael, always. Never shortened at all. Not Mickie or Mike. But Jack was always Jack not John? He was always Jack to us. Peter was never shortened either. I was always shortened. Not always but most times. We did a great deal of fancy dress. But he wouldn't recognize me there. Barrie was never called James by anyone? He was either called Mr. Barrie or Sir James. Or Sir Jess or Sir Jem or Sir James. I can't recall who called him James, some people probably did. His contemporaries maybe? Jimmie. A good deal as Jimmie. When did the JMB start coming in? Can't say. Can't answer.
