In the Beginning
I was born at a very early age (please excuse my weak attempts at humour) at 9.00 pm on Saturday 6 December 1941 at 67 Elgin Road, Seven Kings, Ilford, Essex, England. It was a home birth, although I remember nothing about it *Smile* My paternal grandmother was present, but my father had not been around for at least three months. He had been posted to North Africa with the British Eighth Army.

I was born in what had originally been called the scullery of a double fronted two storey Victorian house where my parents rented the ground floor. Much more than that I cannot say, although my mother and I together with my grandmother, and an aunt evacuated ourselves to Droitwich in Worcestershire to live with another aunt and uncle who was employed at the long wave radio transmitter near the town.

I didn't meet my father until I was over three years old when he returned from the Middle East, so my early formative years were heavily female focused. In retrospect, I believe that was a very positive experience.
