An ex-pat remembers

By Ken Burt

Born at number 73

I was born and bought up at 73 Islingword Place and I went to St Luke's School until the age of 14. I served in the Royal Marines for three years in WWII, and I was married at St Luke's Church in 1951.

Worked at Allen West

I worked for many years at Allen West as a machinist, and in January 1971 emigrated with my family to Australia. Due to financial restraints I have not been able to visit Brighton since then.

Visit Brighton in my memories

I am now living in a retirement village on my own, as my wife died two years ago. Although I can't afford to visit my home town, I often travel back to Brighton in my memories.

Hello Ken, I live in Islingword Place... originally grew up in Brading Rd, so I didn't move far! Would be interested to hear your memories of the street. Kate.
