A note on Sheila Ray - she was a librarian specialising in children's literature. She died in 2018. There is an obituary on the IBBY website (International Board on Books for Young people) which says that her papers are now in the archive of Seven Stories at Newcastle. However, you can search this archive online and under 'Sheila Ray' there are many publications about Enid Blyton but nothing relating to AR. What happened to TARBID is a mystery. Sheila wrote that TARBID had been published in the TLS, but you need to be a subscriber to search the TLS archive. That's all I know.
The TARBID extracts published in the Mixed Moss articles are fascinating. I wonder if Alan Hakim (a veteran Tar like me) knows any more about this?
