My early life is a jumble; a tumble with a cloudy mixture of glimpses that seem unconnected by any sense of continuity. Yet I can often roughly date them by other events that were going on at the time – the death of a relative, what GB (my elder brother by 5 years) was up to, when I started school and even major events in the world. I have divided those early days into a variety of headings from ‘My Tricycle’ to ‘Radio Programmes’. Hopefully some of them will be of general interest as well as being absolutely fascinating to my family!
