  3. I used to go with my brother Ron to the Melody maker band contest. I stood within 2ft of George Shearing the blind pianist.it was held in Blackpool. George played in the intervals Ken Carpenter was one of the compares.I was raised on Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, Benny Goodman.always thought that Joe Loss could hold his own with these. I still download this music on Spotify at the age of 85

Ron played in a football final at Sutton at the age of 53.

  8. I was at Cowley from 1940-45 I remember Kipper Adshead well. He got me through the exams.Brilliant teacher.Tom Smith the Janitor was great. I think he lost both feet in world war 1. The headmaster was Gerald Dowse a strict disciplinarian.He once caned the whole of my class because a boy who had committed a misdeamener didn't own up. I had three stripes just at the base of the spine which my mam discovered from the blood on my vest. He died on stage giving his retirement speech Jock Stronach taught alongside Swiney Jones

  12. My mam's day started by carrying hot Coals from the fire through the house to the copper,then it was into one tub to be worked with the dolly, then into a second tub for rinsing, then through the mangle then hung over maiden in the front room for drying.next was clearing up in the washroom.then cooking my dads tea at the same time as scrubbing the floor.her day started at 7 am and finished at 6pm.then followed days of ironing. She washed for four adults and four children.Eventualy she was bought an Ada washing machine with a built in mangle with rubber rollers We're certainly spoiled these days Dickie D if you read books about the 1st world war and world war 2 It's all about death and graves on a massive scale. It's history and everyone should be made aware of it.men were shot by their own for cowardis.and traitors were hanged. It's life
