Remember the fire station well in Lingard St.After collecting coal off the railway line at the back of my Nans in Goodrick St.We were chased off by railway police.
I jumped of the bank but caught my thigh on a long nail.This put a long gash up my Left thigh. I Was rushed round the fire station were they put11 stitches in the leg.they made a really good job of it.This was IN1947.
IN 2015 Ihad to have a Left hip Op And the surgeon asked if I had had it done before.After telling him the story he said the fireman who did the stitching would have made a good Surgeon
