Early Years - a Memory of Watford.
We moved to Watford in 1943. My war time memories are of night after night in the shelters, the "doodle bugs" and the boys playing Germans and soldiers on the bomb site next door. My special memories are of Cassiobury Park where we used to watch the barges on the Grand Union Canal, in 1947 tobogganing down the "Pudding Bowl" on the golf course.My great friend and I would explore the old Mill - said to be haunted, ride to the Bluebell woods at the end of Cassiobury Drive - avoid the RAF camp and the guard dogs - and before we moved away in 1952 cycle to Hunton Bridge with my brother and his friends to train spot
All so long ago and far away
