John, The plot thickens, I thought I was a miserable loaner. My mate was Trev Bond who lived at 82 or 84 Nottingham Road. He moved up to 146 Waterford Drive later. I still see him now and again. Talk about strange. What number Windsor Drive did you live at and when did you move. When I got married in Sept 1966 we moved to 17 Windsor Drive and stayed there until 1991 so I know where Windsor Drive is.
The Alsatian from Sadler Gate belonged to Mrs Bond, but no reltion to Trev. We had about 7 or 8 Alsatians that we took out for walks and training. This paid off for me as when I did my National Service I became an RAF Police Dog Handler for 2 years. My brother is Barry, he lives at Barton under Needwood. Did you know David Rogerson of Lime Grove who became a Vicar??
The only night school I remember was I was the only boy in a class for "Touch Typing"
It seems like you did well for yourself. After I left the Police I was head of Security for Swan National Car Rental, Then a year driving cars for TCH at Derby, then 12 and a half years with Derby Council as Housing Visitor before retiring at 67 yrs. I am now 73 direct e-mail [email protected] Brian

John, that sounds like me. I lived at 114 Sunny Grove near the top of Lime Grove. I had my pigeons until THE wife said me or the pigeons !!. My memory needs a jog about you. Where did you live and which schools did you go to ? I joined the regular Police Force in Sepy 59 and served for 30 years. I am living in Oakwood Derby now. Brian
