Yes, you are correct Horus, I meant to write late 60's, but yes it must have been 1972 because that was about the time of my first ever visit to Leicester. They had a reception centre set up for these poor people as they arrived at Leicester Railway Station.

P.S. - For your reference Zoo, that was the time when the present day The Last Plantagenet on Granby Street, was a large furniture shop on two or three floors called Waring & Gillow.

Before my time dear chap - but interesting to know. :lol:

...............and, Hepzibah did you for even one moment ever think that I might be anything more than a humble West Bank road sweeper.

I've never given it any thought. I can think of better ways of using my time. I do know a West Bank road sweeper, but he's certainly not you.

A-Four, you are confused. Happy Moon was a Chinese aquaintance of mine who used to 'wait' at table.
