No longer a schoolboy but now a youth embarking on a fresh start. He sensed the significant changes in the air as World War II had just ended. Nations, both victors and vanquished, were scrambling to adapt their economies for peace, sparking an atmosphere of serious excitement about the impending transformation.

‘I’m leaving school this Easter,’ he announced to the September Road boys before descending from the low stone wall and making his way home, bidding his ‘byes’. He was about to join the ranks of the unemployed.

‘Ship’s Engineer or an apprentice to it, perhaps?’ his father had suggested. However, the title ‘Marine Engineer’ was not part of his parents’ final job considerations for him. The subject soon became as obsolete as the proverbial dodo – his first disappointment.

The challenge of finding a job as a young adult had begun, and his life progressed. He was eager to demonstrate enthusiasm and willingness to work.

Setting aside these challenges, he found solace in his reflective moods, comforted by the breathtaking glamour of Hollywood screen actress Rita Hayworth. Her latest film had introduced him to her new visage, now occupying his quieter moments with a vision that both calmed and thrilled him.

Bernard Fredericks was born in Liverpool. He is a freelance writer; also, he has contributed a multiplicity of published articles to various magazines, newspapers, and on occasions, local radio. Bernard was also an active member of a Northwest Writers’ Club, and for some years, he served as an editor of a monthly arts magazine published in North West England. He released his first book, a WWII trilogy about Liverpool kids titled Escape from the Blitz, After the Blitz, and Beyond the Blitz. Bernard is married, with a grown-up family and presently residing in North Wales, where he’s working on new scripts for future publication.
