I was a teenager in the 70's but 73 is the year that I remember best. I went to my first concert ( Slade at the city hall ), was introduced to fishing by some school friends and started a paper round which meant I had my own money as well as pocket money from my parents.
I'd moved down here a few months previously and found it hard to settle but made some pals that year and we're still mates 45 years later.

1940's for me,
Powdered egg, rickets, red hot shrapnel flying around, Flanagan and Allen on the radio, ladies legs that tasted of gravy powder, handing out white feathers, plus the anticipation of seeing a banana.

Happy days
