Burnt Oak was a place of indiscriminate and random violence. If you were unlucky enough to be a minority I'm sure it was much worse. There were several years when skinheads (and other plain thugs) ruled the streets.
I'd like to know what happened to a friend of mine (with an unpronounceable - and equally unspellable) name. He was a coloured fellow with one ear that was missing (I believe he had a skin graft) and his name was pronounced KWEMAY - I think it was spelt Quemea. He was a first class friend and I would love to say "Hi" to him if he is still around. We're talking here of the late sixties/early seventies. Good luck to all who survived the times.
