This is a condensation of a journal that my daughter asked me to keep concerning the lifestyle, the people, and my personal thoughts about the first twenty one years of my life.

It is a depiction of growing up in two of the greatest decades in American history. I have interjected humor with fact for the enjoyment of the reader. This was a very special time, not only for me, but also for others my age who shared this experience. This book is Americana Texana at its best, and I hope that it will serve as a small window into these two great decades that we can share together.< Less

By the end of the 1950’s London had become a different kind of place. Organised crime was violent and out of control and police corruption rife at almost every level with much of it centred around the old East End.< Less
