Subject: RE: Childrens singing games
The playground....without any adult influence...was normally the place..passed on virtually unchanged for generations ( compare collections by Gomme and the Opies).
    Adults often suppresed them in the name of safety, and old playground ganes like Ji Jimmy Knacker, British Bulldog,Hoppity bump etc were all 'outlawed' when I was in primary school in the fifties.
