I was born in Lambeth hospital in 1936. My parents moved into Nepaul Road off Falcon Road. My first memories of the Second World War were the blitz and air raid shelters. We were not bombed out but the estate was saved by Christ Church tower, I am not sure what date but believe it was the time of the V1s.
I remember going to school in Mantua Street and in 1947 going to Lavender Hill, leaving home and crossing the railway lines and through the bomb site which I believe used to be a cinema. My dad took me to my first football game in September 1947 at Fulham and for my sinsIi am still going to the games at Fulham.
