From Errol to Rory and Deirdre

August 4, 1959:

Darlings,

It hurts so much and I am so disappointed that we won’t be able to see each other this summer … I must go to Spain to try to make some money and besides the Jamaica house is not yet finished …

But whatever happens I am definitely going to pick you up and take you to Jamaica for the Christmas vacation. And you can help me get this new house fixed up and all feminine and stuff. All the things I don’t know anything about … and we’ll have horses and boats and maybe I can even fix you up with some dates, although I guess I’m going to be a little jealous when all those nice looking guys come around …

I love you so very, very much.

Your Baron

Sittin’ Like Flynn?

February 15, 1938

At the Belfast School attended by Errol Flynn, they’ve made the star’s old desk a sign of honor. The student with the highest grades of the week gets to sit in it for five days. Desk was identified by a carved inscription on the back: “Errol Flynn, 1926.”

Falsely identied, says Flynn. He remembers the incident and says that he carved his name on the desk in front of him.

Here’s how Errol looked circa the time of this alleged desk signing.

A school desk signed in 1926 Belfast by Errol Flynn? I believe that would be Errol’s most rare and valuable autograph … if it indeed ever existed! Perhaps they should have said Australia, rather than Northern Ireland. Or did Errol really attend school in Belfast???? (Possibly before or after his admission into or expulsion from Sydney Church of England Grammar(aka “Shore”)?) I think that would be news to me. In any case, what school, and what happened to the desk/where is it now??
