My History

I was born in South Shields in 1948 a twin and son of a policeman. I started working life at Reyrolle Engineering in the Drawing Office but found it too tame and transferred to Engineering.

Due to redundancies I was looking for work and when in South Shields Town Centre a Fire Engine came hurtling past me on the corner nearly chopping off my toes.

I approached the Fire Station to complain only to be told " You look like a strong lad, do you want an application form?" What could I say but yes and managed 30 years in probably one of the best professions in the world.

I am currently enjoying being a retired person with more time to enjoy my hobbies and holidaying whenever we can

My Future

Trying to stay fit and enjoying my grandchildren and great grandchildren

My wife( Irene ) and I love walking and seeing new landscapes, this allows me to forage for sticks and locate new sources.
