Patrick Ronald Roberts was born on July 4th 1931 in London. The second of four children.

The family moved to Liverpool in 1943 to escape the constant bombing of the city by the Germans, and the terrible poverty in which they were living.

Patrick and his elder brother Evan, 95, are the only remaining siblings. He lost his sister Betty to suicide aged 28, and his brother George died aged just 21 in an army accident in Egypt. He is buried in a military cemetery in Cyprus.

Patrick, almost 91, enjoys bowling, playing chess, and writing short stories, and has only recently stopped playing golf.
