|"I thought I'd learnt everything at 15 ; "a teenager during the 1940s|
Worked helping with hay making. Worked in butchers shop on Saturday morning at 14. Once you left you left that circle of friends. Didn't have any one particular person as a best friend.
"People in town wanted you, like when I was working on the Saturday morning the butcher was dying for me to be 15 so that I could leave school so he could take me on and get me on full time because he was short handed"
