Here is a copy of the book I wrote about the first 20 years of my life. It takes in from when I was born during the Great Depression and then my rotten childhood through no fault of my parents.
Then through the war years and being bombed twice during the London Blitz and the evacuation, plus the post war years up to my farcical wedding day in 1949.
It was written around 15 years ago so any dates in it would have to be updated. All proceeds after printing costs taken out goes to my local Childrens Hospice and it was the chap who printed it that contacted the local paper about it which in turn led to ITV contacting me.
I am more than happy to know that it has made a large sum for the hospice and into the bargain the tales are all true.
If anyone is interested here is the pointer to it. Just click on each chapter at the bottom of the page for the next chapter to come up.

I have read through this and found it amazing.
Very well written and vividly captures this period in history in a very readable manner capturing the highs and lows of the circumstances and of the characters' lives.
There is sadness and tragedy but also some very funny and extremely descriptive passages.
Well worth a read.
