  2. ABOUT 1938 Just before l left school Frank Mattock took a shine to me asking what l was to do when left school, a joiner l said , any tools no says l ,he told me to come back the next day ,he had bought me a saw, plane ,screwdriver, and a sheet of plywood. He set me fitting new bottoms to 4 suet boxes he paid me and said to keep the tools, l used to do odd jobs, when l had nothing to do he let me go on the egg run with the van driver round all the farms. HE was a very nice man. l never heard of him having any family but a brother ran the shop bottom of Bramber st. Cheers Arthur

  7. I did not know anything of Sir Charles Clifford but l do know what the land on Tree Root Walk was in use as , it was a very large orchard & vegetable garden with a very high wall encompassing it. I am a little ashamed to say l and other 8 yr olds climbed it and stole produce, we were poor and fruit was a real luxury in those days. one of these escapades nearly landed me in trouble as whilst l was very high up a pear tree we heard the door open to reveal a rather large man with a large black beard, he immediately chased the others away but did not see me up the tree. After he ate some fruit he fell asleep in his chair, after 2 hours in one position l could hardly move, l dropped the last 6 ft and raced to freedom l shall never forget that day. The next time l was on that land was to have a tooth out it was 10 yrs later Cheers Arfer Mo

  19. HI, I recall our first radio l think it was a Pye, l would be about 8yrs but l can't remember any programs, but it is over 80 yrs ago, it was semi triangular shape with a round grill with a pattern which always reminded me of trees with no leaves, maybe that was the intended pattern. As regards TV that was about 1950, my favourite prog; that was about a cosmetic surgeon who was called Dr Sava, and being retired he helped people with with his skills often without payment. Cheers Arfer Mo.
