WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE
ADDED 6 DECEMBER 2007
I was born in Pontefract 1922 and lived and
worked in Pontefract up to the outbreak of World War Two. Having
enlisted in the Territorial Army in April 1939 (Royal Corps of
Signals, Gibraltar Barracks, Leeds) I was called up on Friday 1st
September and finally demobbed in 1946.
Following a very brief spell at Wilkinsons of Bradford, better known
locally as "the wood works", I joined the Merchant Navy in search of
something a little more interesting, and after three wonderful years
I married and found good employment in Leeds where I have lived ever
I have found this website by chance and what a pleasant surprise - I
know and remember well several contributors. If Johnny Green, the
pawnbrokers son, reads this, "Hello John, good wishes to you. Good
to learn you survived the war." I would love to see him and of
course any of the other classmates from Senior Boys and 'Daddy'
Howells and co.
All the best...Lawrie
