Green be­fore its time

The Oldie - - READER'S LETTERS -

SIR: Fol­low­ing Nigel An­drew’s rem­i­nis­cence about the El­iz­a­bethan mag­a­zine (Oc­to­ber is­sue), I won­der if any Oldie read­ers will re­call an even ear­lier young peo­ple’s mag­a­zine called Hut­coun­try?

This pocket-sized mag­a­zine of the 1940s dealt largely, as I re­mem­ber, with coun­try­side mat­ters and, in its en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns, must have been ahead of its time. I was a devo­tee but sadly kept no copies.

Even Google does no more than link the ti­tle to a ‘Hut-man’s Club’, with no fur­ther ex­pla­na­tion. Michael Dav­i­son, Kingston upon Thames
