Jim I do not think Ted means to condone this behaviour but tell us where he came from and the people he knocked around with .The Teddy boys some of them did run in packs and where cowardly but many I knew and I wore that dress at one time along with the italian style a little later.I think Ted is just talking the way it comes out and is not looking for a argument just stating his life as he does ,not sure what is wrong with that.
I am sorry Tom but I see it differently than you. Some of the people I knocked about with were villians and hard men. When nessesarry they would have what we called a straightener. I.E. a fist fight. None of my crowd, to my knowledge carried Knives etc. If they had then I would not have associated with them. If you read what I wrote again Tom, I said nothing personal about Ted, just his choice of friends.
if you go way back on the site you will see a St Annes class photo, I think she is on it, there are some other photos on the site of her in the church girls brigade with my friend Ethel Walker from Lyle Crescent. do not know where she is now I havent seen her since we left school. As I joined the wrac i lost touch with a lot of school friends.All I remember is that she had deep auburn hair.
Whooeee, John I have read that over and over and still cannot make head or tail of it. I prefer my encyclopedia Britanica version at least it makes sense, but we still have not found out what PROPER english is.
Languages surely change with the times. If you have ever tried reading stuff from just two or three hundred years ago it is difficult to understand. I am not talking about slang, but proper English used at variouse time in the past and up to the present. I wonder what it will be like in the future; Punjabi perhaps?
Could be Jim, it will add another flavour to what is our international language, I have come to the conclusion that perhaps there isnt a proper English only like beauty it is in the eye of the beholder.Those that went to public school would say they spoke proper english, as do those who live on the cuckoo estate and went to St Annes and Brentside, or those that live in East Anglia or Northumberland, or the West Country or even little old me and Ted.
