So when did you come to Reading? What year?

I came to Reading in 1960. I came to Reading in 1960, that's when I started living. But I visited Reading the Good Friday, no it was the Saturday, 1960 and there was a lot of people round Jackson's Corner, by the thousands. That's when I found they march from Aldermaston. They were going to London, so they needed to stop at Reading that night.

The thing was I was walking past and estate agent and this chap called me and asked me if I wanted to buy a house and I said I've got no money to buy a house. He said I never tell you anything about money. He said I was just tell you do you want to buy a house? I said no. I said I'm just a stranger, just come for a day to visit this place and he said take this leaflet about this house, go on since you're only walking around. Go along to Caversham, over the river.
