Memories of Dursley

While on holiday, one of my pals, bought some laxative chewing gum from Boots. Having placed pieces of this gum into a 'Wrigleys' wrapper, my pal gave a piece to a young boy he knew in Dursley and another piece to a man from Uley, that he also knew. We thought that this was a good trick to play, but of course we were afraid to subsequently enquire if there had been any effect! Happy days!

While staying with my Uncle and Aunt in Uley during the school holidays, I bought an air-pistol. To be on the safe side I bought a Gun Licence from the Post Office in Dursley. Ken Cook
