Born in Meeting House Lane in 1931 Brant Broughton; we soon moved into the big old house that used to be the old Hall House. This house is in Main Street and it was opposite my uncle's fish and chip shop. My dad, was George Pailing and he had three lorry's, and kept a lot of pigs. He also grew sugar beet in a field up Clay Lane and the field opposite the Methodist Chapel, that was before bungalows and houses were built there. I went to the local schools until I left at the age of 14, I then used to bike to Newark to work at Hopkinsons where I learnt my trade for electrical engineering. After 7 years it was completed and I was then called for National Service and joined the RAF.
