Example text

I too prayed, asking for divine forgiveness, protection and mercy. Then I made sure that everyone had left before leaving the sanctuary of the church. ’ How could I challenge Dad’s wisdom – a true Cockney through and through! Speaking of my dad here, I write of a tough man who was quiet and polite in company but an entirely different animal as a soldier, which I will come back to later. To bring this sad episode to an end: Mr Elliott decided that my services would no longer be required in the choir, so now it was necessary to find another source of income to help finance my legal visits to the cinema – which Alf kept on ‘abart’!

Ted Hodgson was king in his castle, while my grandmother Mary, a sweet kindly lady, appeared to know her place; but, again, all this was seen through young eyes. The year 1939 saw the outbreak of war, which to a 7-year-old would mean little. To be honest, I don’t recall Lil or Alf being too concerned about it at the time; if they were, they certainly didn’t show it. Anyway, I had my own problems to deal with in the daily ritual of going to school – war or no war, nothing would change that! Family discussions about the conflict remained frequent, where Dad would tell of his involvement in the First World War.

My passion for the cinema came early at the local church hall watching silent films of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Laurel and Hardy and other comedians of that era. It was free and therefore acceptable for the family budget to cope with. However, to visit a real cinema, to enter the sanctuary of the auditorium, required money and was a domestic luxury unaffordable in the Mills household. Following my failure to become a musician, I decided to focus instead on other strategies that would enable me to enjoy the expense of an afternoon at the local fleapit along with my roguish pals.
