I did something incredibly stupid this past Saturday evening around 7:30 PM. I had been at an all day session and yes some beer had been consumed and on my way home I seem to have lost my wheatstone tenor english concertina. I am known to be absent minded but am usually obsessively careful with my musical instruments - having been trained from youth.
I am fairly sure that I left it in a taxi going home from Clapham South (London) .. I had a couple of melodeons with me as well and didn't realise that I was missing the concertina until I started to unlock my door at which point the taxi was already gone. I guess it may have been left on route from Pimlico to Clapham South station - Victoria to Northern lines ... but I think I would have noticed sooner ... hopefully.
I have attached a couple of pictures here but the box was a 1960s make 48 key tenor box - metal ended - black and inside a black case.
The top Eb on the left hand side doesn't sound on the draw and the D# also left side one octave down warbles on the draw.
Have notified TFL and the police but the person who answered at TFL lost property office didn't know what a concertina was and I am not sure she understood my explanation. So I am gutted and not with much hope at present.
If anyone encounters the box I will be happy to offer a reward for its return. Sadly, I had reached the point where this was my favourite box to play. My mobile number is 07533 635 116.
