Colin


"I was one of nine kids. And we all knew the rules"

Colin told me all about how things were in such a big family. And how things were as he was going out and about as a youth

"we all had our jobs and we all got on with it....and when I was going out later on I'd go to Samsons club. There was no alcohol at all...you had to go outside if you wanted a drink. It was all rock and roll music. And it was a good night too! We'd leave later on and go to get chips from Timberhill. the police would be following you and then they'd say 'right, you got 10 minutes to get yourself home!'. And the police were big blokes then, there were rules that said they had to be so big. Nowadays they look like little kids who couldn't handle themselves"
