So, why write about my early years, my early careers on the steam locomotives, and my time in the RAF? I suppose the answer is that this is for future generations of the family, and anyone else who may take an interest. It is the recording of information which may be lost with the passing of time. How I wish that my great-grandparents had written down simple basic facts about their Special Years. I know nothing of their youth or how they lived it.
