This is my 1st memory in time. Don't ask me how I remember anything from here as I was only 2 when we left.
My Memory was of us living in an upstairs apartment. One day my mother was sweeping the stairs. I had a yellow Crocodile soap on a string. My mother swept it down the stairs and it broke. I was in tears because it was broken but I remember my mother promising me she would buy me a new one. To this day she never has. Prehaps I better remind her haha.
We lived here till I was about 2 before my dad got stationed to Aden in Yeman. We lived in the top flat in a block of flats and the roof was our play ground. It was probably the safest place we could play. The school buses had armed guards and mine sweepers to protect it. I'll post some pictures when I find them. It probably wasn't the best place to live at that time. There were daily bombs and gun fire. My mother told me a story bout how the arabs liked to scare the English women. One day my mother had been to the shops and on the way back she passed a group of arab men. As she passed one of the men cocked a gun. My mother heard him do it but was determind not to show fear. She says she carried on walking at her normal pace, panicing all the time that her was going to shoot her. You can't imagine the releif she felt when she got around the corner. After Aden, we moved to Catterick in the UK till my dad left the army. From here we moved to Fartown and stayed with my Grandma until my parents got a council house at Waterloo, Huddersfield.
When I was 13 my parents bought an old farm house in Lowerhouses and we moved.
