My parents emigrated to Australia in 1968 but I still bear the scars of an altercation with a golf club at the hands of a childhood friend in the back street behind Derby Road, Ansdell. I inadvertently walked behind someone who was swinging a club and collected my chin, a bloody mess, literally. I had a friend called Jillian Anderson and am related to the Hewertsons (Alice and Braithwaite) who had a milk round in the 60s and would love to contact anyone who remembers me or is part of that family or the Shore family who had a boarding house in St Annes. I am currently a teacher in Tasmania, Australia and even now my students will comment on the fact that I speak English well, and that I attribute to the Principal of Ansdell County Primary school who insisted we speak "properly".
