Albert Atter

My name is Albert Atter and I was born in a house near the Chapel on Back Lane on November 1st, 1930. Then when I was five years old we all moved to Woolsthorpe and lived in a council house on the Woolsthorpe Road. We were a family of nine, five sisters and four brothers. A few of them are not around now, but I still have my five sisters. Their names are Betty, Nancy, Margaret, Wendy, Peggy, Cecil, also Ron and Ernie. Cecil was the oldest and was, at one time, in the Coldstream Guards. Read more....


Fred Adams

As a child I lived at Corby Glen and although I was christened Alfred William I have always been known as Fred. After attending the local village school, I went to the King`s School in Grantham where I matriculated in my School Certificate exams. This enabled me to claim direct entry into the Royal Air Force as an Aircraft Apprentice. Read more....




Jim Allgood

My name is Jim Allgood and I was a policeman for 30 years. I have been asked to share some of my experiences. I was brought up in a little village called Ratcliffe-on-Wreke, about 7 miles from Leicester. My dad didn`t want me to join the Police Force, I don`t know why. I am not aware that he had any criminal record but he did not like policemen, and he certainly did not want me to become a police officer. He even said things like, `I`m not having a policeman in this house while I live here! Read more....

I am in my fortieth year which I shall be celebrating big-style very shortly. I was born in Solihull in the West Midlands in 1967. My mother, Janice, and my father, John, were both from Birmingham.
