Chicky, remember it all like it happened today. Very young, very fit, just left Nesta in Wales whose mother the original Welsh dragon had tried to dragoon me into marraige, the army shipped me out to Bordon. Did you know it had been the Canadian Garrison I was in Martinique barracks. Dances in garison theatres in different camps and the local hop, i had a ball parden the pun. Went back many times so saw it fade slowly away sad all those memories. Had my last public fight in the Frencham Ponds Hotel. A mess party and a girl set her sights on me for some reason, I said sorry love I am married, next minute a bloke screaming at me, is she not good enough and swung a punch, big mistake, when he woke up the landlord threw the pair of them out, 1967 really at that age there should be more sense. Had some great times in Hampshire, loved the local folk, often drank in the pub at Whitehill, Alton, Liphook, always a soft spot Chicky although now just memories.
