About Me

I lived at 11 Rising Lane between 1946 and 1964. My father and grandfather also lived on the Suburbs as early as 1908. My friends were, Nigel Tordoff, Colin Laycock, Ian Shatwell, Iain MacCorquodale, Stuart Fiddler, Lincoln Porter, Graham Howard and others. I was in the Rose Queen for several years but was never allowed to be the 'sword bearer', nor, indeed, the Rose Queen although my sister Anne and Aunt Phyllis were. If anyone reading this knows 'The Back Garden Route' , get in touch!!
