Memories of Cumbria
I was stationed at HMS Nuthatch in 1949. During the evenings I worked in the cinema called the 'Antheon' showing films. We also put on variety shows on stage, one show we put on in a local village and were overwhelmed by the holpitality of the local villagers. Anthorn holds many happy memories for me and I hope to return soon before times run out, I am now 83.
Searching For my Roots
My paternal grandfather John Routledge was from little Bampton. He had a horse called Tam o' Shanter which was a sulky trotter named after the local pub. I would love to find out more about him.
I Used to Live in Drumburgh
I used to live in Drumburgh, lived down the lane in a cottage called Hazeldene. I used to be the local decorator and worked in all the local villages. I used to play darts for the Highland Laddie pub, when Bernie ran it. I owned a WW2 Green Fire Tender which was parked in the garden. Would like to chat with anyone from Drumburgh or the villages.
