Born and bred within a stones throw from the River Tyne in a small suburb, five miles west of Newcastle upon Tyne.
I come from a family of miners and soldier’s, neither one though ever took my fancy as a profession, although at the tender age of 16, I did try the British Army – not to my liking though. My affection for the RAF always took my first place but alas I failed to get in. Nether the less, the love of aircraft was always my passion and anything to do with the RAF.

My favourite subjects at school though was History and English (writing) and I was a little successful at getting a poetry book published but it never made me rich. History however facinated me then and still. I would research anything but mainly World War 2.
