For the record

The two British-Israeli sisters killed in a gun attack in the West Bank on 7 April, which later claimed the life of their mother, were Maia and Rina Dee. We apologise that in an early edition of the newspaper last week the sisters’ surname was given incorrectly, owing to our mistranslation of a statement by Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu (World news, p26).

Glenda Youde is an art historian at the University of York, not at Sheffield University (Not drowning, but painting: pre-Raphaelite muse finally recognised for her own art, 2 April, p13).

A photograph said to show the Beatles dining with the headmaster of Stowe school after a concert there in 1963, in fact pictured the band with the school’s shop manager, Tom Claridge, his wife Elaine, and their family (“Why lost Beatles school gig tape could be saved for the nation”, 9 April, p5). The tape recorder used to record the gig was a Butoba MT5, not a Nagra III as the article and a related opinion piece (It was 60 years ago today…, p47) stated.

Izaak Walton would have fished the River Lea in London about 400 years ago, not 500 as an article said (‘Bloody hell, Feargal. Keep going with what you’re doing on rivers’, 9 April, p36). The author of The Compleat Angler lived from 1593 to 1683.
