Dialog - Peter Cochrane
By Peter Cochrane
I’m very ready to swap memories of ” the early days ” now I have arrived at that point in my life.
Born— 1930 Hatfield Hyde.
Lived in Hatfield Lower Hyde until 1937 when forced to move into the Garden City, at 127 Salisbury Rd.
Son of ‘Cochrane Coal’ family. Loaded & carried coal around the city until conscription saved me in 1948.
Schools— Ludwick ( Miss Bradshaw ) Peartree , Handside (Mr Bates, Mr Smith, Mr Small & Miss McKechney) Hatfield Tech. etc.
My family was from Handside ( Halsey’s ), Lemsford ( Cochrane’s ), Cromer Hyde ( Fowlers & Boons )
Have many vivid memories of those days !Lived abroad since 1963.
