Liverpool Born And Bred Peter Kelly
PB 186 pages
Very good condition
Born on a cold February day in 1938, Peter Kelly and his seven siblings grew up in poverty in a small terraced house in Anfield. Life was hard for Peter's family during and after the war. He recalls childhood memories with amazing clarity and detail, from a two-year-old baby, through infancy, and telling of the bombs dropping around their house while hiding in a makeshift shelter. He tells of his father's work on the Docks as the Luftwaffe tries to wipe Liverpool off the face of the map. Two of Peter's siblings die of pneumonia and he spends months in hospital with the same terrible disease.
He then describes going through puberty with vivid descriptions of life on the streets. His account of everyday childhood activities, long forgotten by most is full of anecdotes, laughter and tears. He recounts early working days in a busy pawnshop which struggling people had to use to make ends meet.
Eventually, he's called up for Army National Service and sails to the Far East on a Troopship, experiencing a freak incident when the ship takes on thousands of gallons of seawater halfway across the Indian Ocean. Arriving at Singapore, he is issued with a Rifle and ammunition and sent up country in war-torn Malaya.
Peter describes life in the mountainous region among the people and wonderful creatures of the rainforest, where he is beguiled by a beautiful Chinese girl and makes love for the first time.
