The Greenhouse St Bedes Grammar School Together with the other smokers we congregated in the gardeners shed. One day he said that he wanted to remove one of the older greenhouse, consequently we obliged one lunch time, we did not take it to pieces. To save time we tied a rope round the door end and pulled the side out. Much to our surprise the whole thing came down with a crash. We were all amused but Chippy Tindale the head did not see the joke, but he must have had a sense of humour, our punishment was to help the gardener dig over the vegetable plot, Which was really a chance to smoke even more.

Event

Note: The Army was a result of frustration I was working at Remingtons Chemists for 10 shillings a week. Directly opposite was the Mechanics Institute which was also the Army recruiting centre, being 17 at the time I was well aware that I would be called up, so on the basis that by joining voluntarily I could pick my training I signed up for 5 and 7 Five years service and seven years reserve. I spent one year in Catterick, training. One year working in the war office Comms centre and then three years in France.I came out and went to work for NCR. I got fed up with that and Mum saw an advert for Teacher Training they wanted mature students so I went Macmillan for three years Better grant than my pay at NCR. While at Macs to supplement my income in the holidays I painted a few house along with Jack Mawson. While we were painting Lincoln Street (almost literally) one of the residents suggested I might like to live there. I said they were no good to me with 4 kids. I pointed across the field at Grange Fold and said that would do. He said Jack wants to sell so after a conversation we agreed to buy it for £2,500, he subsequently upped the price by £1000. We then managed to persuade the corporation to give us a mortgage to buy the lot.
