I was born in Battersea 1950, son of Mr & Mrs Redpath (Wally & Edith) I had two other brothers Terry & Garry. Fond memories of Battersea Park and of spending many days in and around the park with other kids from Elcho Street; Roger Hockham and Alan Flower. Many times waiting for the buses terminating in our street for the bus driver & conductor to go off for their break, whilst we searched the buses for pennies that had dropped out of the passenger's pockets and fallen into the back of the seats - and wow did we have some finds! My brothers went to Battersea County School. Then at the age of 11 mum and dad moved to Bermondsey and had to every day cycle from Bermondsey to Battersea Dogs home. Mum worked at Hemmings the Bakers, in Battersea Bridge Road and dad worked for Haven Foods near Garlo Gatti's, near to Bishops removals.
