|"You either did what you were told or you get a clip behind the ear" : 1940s childhoodInterview with Roly Johnstone|
Talks about balls- Hunt Club, Riverlea, dances at Te Kowhai, Matangi, Tauwhare, Ohaupo,
"They were everywhere, just about every country hall had a dance on on Saturday
Mentions Gaiety skating rink, played roller hockey there,
"Before we even knew the skating rink was available,...my cobber and I had bought skates and we used to skate round the streets...and we used to get kicked off the street now and again too, the local constable would see you and he'd race up on his push-bike and tell you what bad boys you were"
Wore sports clothes to ordinary dances but wore proper dress suits to a ball. Discusses movies, had permanent seats at the Embassy Theatre on Saturday nights. Recalls seeing `Ben Hur', `Mary Poppins', `The Sound of Music'.
Went to the Hamilton Operatic shows too.
