Ouch!A 1950’s and 1960’s Childhood in Injuries

A memoir of my schooldays and early College days in the Moston area of Manchester. Written for the benefit of siblings, nephews and nieces who had no knowledge of my father who was a bit of a fly by night as we say up North. Includes the story of how I convinced Oldham Police that I was actually Glenn Miller. What happened was…..well read it and see!

Jack Judge and the Origins of the First World War Song “It’s A Long Way To Tipperary”
Jack Judge was my Grandfather’s cousin and he wrote this famous song and first performed it in Stalybridge. The story had long circulated in our family and I decided to do some research on the tale and make it available for anyone to read.

Puss…..the Cat Who Worked for the Police
A children’s story about the exploits of Puss a Police cat! Not as ridiculous as it might seem as several cats are now employed by the Police in Japan. (Google it if you don’t believe me!)

My poetry available on the Amazon Kindle

Before I retired a colleague convinced me that I should try my hand at poetry, it would be rather edgy he thought. Well he was not wrong! All of these short volumes contain material which is rude, foul mouthed and politically incorrect. To look at them if you are easily offended would be quite silly as I shall delight in pointing out to you if you then have the temerity to complain to me!
