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 since.

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
