Just found this thread.

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
