Living in Hanover
We moved to Brighton in 1944. I was four at the time, my sister Jean was two years old.We lived with our father and mother at 21 Hanover Street. Our house had been a shop and was on the right of a small twitten; on the left was the Little Fox public house.

Moved to Hollingbury
In 1951 we moved to Hollingbury and lived in a nice new council house at 6 Fernhurst Crescent. I sat my 11+ exam at Carden School almost as soon as I got there; a different way of teaching from my previous school at Finsbury Road, I was a bit lost to say the least. The result of that examination was that I was sent to Patcham Senior School.
