Battersea

A Memory of Battersea

I was born in Church Road, Battersea in1939 and went to Bolingbroke School - 1944 to 1950, then on to Surry Lane. Did not have much in those days, but were very happy times. Swimming in the Thames, looking for old iron on the beach to sell to the rag and bone man, all good fun. Good memories of Battersea, always lots of things to do - building dens on the bomb sites.
