I was born in August 1939, my brother was born in 1936, we lived at 5 The Crescent, Boscombe and my brother and I used to walk down Old Christchurch Road to the lake in Boscombe gardens quite frequently. We used to try and get the bamboo leaves that came from the island in the lake. If we got one we would push the stalk bit through the leaf and sail them as boats, how innocent and safe it was then even though the war was on. After sailing the boats we would go and play in the pond in the front grounds of the Lido in Old Christchurch Road as we made our way back home. Grand days for kids our age.
