  4. I Remember old man Buxton he had a cane called little willie A grand chap I remember him well. In the early days, when coal was hard to come by.My mother sent me down to the canal wharf with our old pram to collect our ration of COLITE.Of course it took all morning.So back at School I expected a dose of Little Willie. Mr Buxton asked me what my father did for a living,I told he was in the steel works.And would you believe it he gave me a key and a paper with his address up at High Storrs and told me to go to his coal house and fill my pram with coal.SO I DID. It wasn't until later years when I came out of the Forces and was invited to join the FELLOWSHP OF THER FORCES that remember the little tiny blue badge that Mr,Buxton had in his jacket lapel.HAPPY DAYS STAY SAFE.
