Greenwich - a Memory of Greenwich.

I lived with my parents in a Drapers shop in Royal Hill. I became a junior shipmate of the Cutty Sark when it was brought to Greenwich. I played in Greenwich Park, visited the Maritime Musuem lots of times, played by the waters edge of the Thames, went on the boats in the boating lake, played on the bomb site in Royal Hill/ Burney Street and walked through the tunnel to the Isle of Dogs. I still have a photo of my late mother standing outside her shop at 18 Royal Hill. Happy Memories

I lived with my two brothers and my aunt at No. 35 Chevening Road from 1945 until 1957, when I married my wife Marilyn who lived in Erith and emigrated to Canada.
My aunt took care of us after the war, because we lost both our parents and 20 year old sister in a shelter, where we used to live in Bermondsey. 76 people were killed when a landmine hit the Billiard Hall underneath the railway.
Through a group Called 'The Bermondsey Boy". I have pictures of plaques of my parents and sister, including the ARP clearing the shelter next day.
