Ah, a few years my senior, hence not knowing the families Jayess :-)  We moved to Curzon Road in  '65' I watched as the 'old Hilgate' was further demolished and pubs being 'renamed' also demolished. Many a happy time spent - also 'sore' times on the estate....

Very interesting Brian  ;)
I've been to Canada but it was quite unintentional, was flying from Manchester to Auckland NZ via London and Vancouver on a Virgin/Air New Zealand Star Alliance flight about 4 years ago. Checked in at Manchester but they could only issue boarding passes as far as Vancouver so when I got to Vancouver I had to pick up my bag, go through customs and immigration explaining my situation to the nice people at the immigration desk before toddling out of the airport for a breath of Canadian air and then turning round and heading for the Air NZ check in counter. Luckily I didn't need a visa ( apparently Kiwi's traveling to or through Canada nowadays need a Electronic Travel Authorisation ). I also spent a few years in Germany helping to keep Ivan's Third Shock Army on their side of the fence but never got to work alongside the Canadian Army only the cloggies, krauts and septics ;)
I'm convinced 90% of the software on my computer doesn't do anything except send me notifications that there's a new version of itself.
