I can remember the Fireman’s strike in the seventies. Me, Paul and Mark Hargrave used to sit with the Fireman when on their picket. We collected wood for their oil drum burner and listened to their many tales. Donkies years later I was at an Antiques fair and got talking to a guy called Naylor. It came out he was the Station commander and could remember us all those years before. What a coincidence!
