Sam

I was born in a town called Castries in St Lucia. A smallish town… I’ve got one sister, Elma… and two brothers… I really can’t remember them at all. I haven’t seen them for a long, long time.

I remember playing football and cricket and stealing jewellery from my mother.

My father was a farmer. He must be quite old now. I haven’t heard from him for a long time.

My mother’s business went kaput. Do you remember a nice-looking woman called Eva Braun? Who was she… an actress?

I was a prototype wireman for Erickson’s amplifiers… soldering the wiring… working to the plans.

I’d like to get my booklet now and work out how long I’ve been here.

I was 18 when I came to England. I can’t remember the history of me.

1939 I was born. My memory is not very good at all.

I used to do a little bit of weightlifting at the local club up in Paddington… very close by.

I’m getting confused.

I never married… my girlfriend… oh that makes me smile… Vivian. That makes me smile. I stole my mother’s diamond ring to give to her. You see some people were clever and I wasn’t clever at all… diamonds and roses, that’s what they say… diamonds and roses.
