A childhood experience, from the 1940s post-war infant years to the raging 1950s. My mother told me that I had actually come into the world with a bang. It happened during one very early morning in 1943 when German bombers were flying overhead, and the spent rounds of anti-aircraft bullets were clattering on the tiled roof above her. Dad also said that he could hear bombs dropping somewhere between Edinburgh and Glasgow. So, it seems that I had come into the world with a bang! A few years later, I was to enter another experience: the teenage years.

William Wood was born in Musselburgh Midlothian in 1943. In 1945, the family moved and settled in the town of Clackmannan. The memories of the post-war rationing years are like looking back on a completely different world when compared to today’s life experience.
