I was born in Sydney Australia on November 24th 1946, into a world that had just ended yet another War. My Mother was the daughter of a Coalminer, he died in a cave in. She was born in Sydney on 23rd Novmber 1928 . My father was a Naval Officer with the Royal Navy, based in Sydney Harbour. Seems they met at a Charleston Contest at the local Servicemens Club. She Won.
