Sample text

With the sun slowly burning its way into flesh, handkerchiefs now suddenly appear with four corners tied in knots fitting snugly on heads to give added protection from the fierce rays, our red faces suggesting we had had a wonderful holiday. Images still remain of ladies’ skirts pulled above the knees, their brown linen stockings allowed to roll down to their ankles – memories now long past … Strangely enough, I still have pictures in my mind of visiting my grandparents. Ted Hodgson was a giant of a man, who to a small boy appeared to rule his household with great authority.

Rushing into the vestry, with the help of the elderly choristers, I quickly put on my black cassock and white surplice, possibly wearing a tilted halo after cheating my way into the cinema. With the organ already playing, a Bible was thrust into my hands and it was time to adopt the customary slow pace on entering God’s house. Mr Elliott, organist and choirmaster, cast a glance in my direction and was obviously displeased with my late arrival and flushed appearance. Even so, I quickly adopted the required angelic look for the measured walk to the choir’s pews, where, along with the congregation, we sang our hearts out to the Almighty.

The observations you will read come from a selection of personal experiences which over the years have given pain, joy, tears and laughter, all of which gave me much to reflect on as I wrote. More than likely some of the continuity will be awry but – with apologies to Eric Morecambe – I’m playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order! However, before my film career comes to dominate the book, there is a part of my history which can only be established in my own way: my early background, where I came from with recollections from my early years during the war.
