More > exits and their entrances and one man in his time plays many parts. His acts being seven ages.” I have rewritten the rest of this speech to reflect my own life, and the memoirs relate the details of the many parts I have played and the other characters on my stage.

He remembered her saying that she regretted not asking why the Yorkshire Ryders chose Wednesbury, Staffordshire, to relocate to. When he found out that I had gone to Rhodesia, not to marry his father - but another man – he knew he had to ask “why?” Volume Two covers the years 1977 - 1987,and is printed in colour with many photographs to illustrate and add interest to the text.< Less
