I found this site by searching for the words to "Linden Lea".
I am now 67 years of age.I never say "years old"...age is all in the mind.
I used to sing this beautiful song at school when I was 10.
A memory that sticks in my mind is the teacher saying that in the days when it was written "Abroad" probably had a different meaning..instead of overseas,as it means today,it meant a much more local journey.
I also remember reading in a flying magazine(in the 1950's) that a WW1 Irish fighter ace,Mick Mannock used to play Linden Lea on his violin when he returned from flying.
I see it's a long time since this site was posted.Hope someone sees this.
