I was born on a not very pleasant day in February 1954! We lived in the Dunkirk area of the West End below the factory/mill on Dunkirk Lane. We had "The Green" to play on, Warley Road, and then the "Top Park" further up when we were a little older. We all walked down to St. Marys Infant and Junior schools by St. Marys Catholic Church, my older sister and her friend making sure we went into school and then taking us home again. ...see more
Joyce Sutcliffe lived in Halifax and worked at Simpsons around 1941. She was called up to the Royal Army Signals in 1942 aged 21. Also Robert Bell worked there and went into the Navy. Other people were Frank Southwell, Owen Southwell, Grace Priestly,Ronniie Gethin. If you know of these people I would love to hear from you. Thank you.
In the late 1950
We always met outside the Halifax Building Society Head Office on Commercial Street and we would say "meet you outside the bank".
