I remember Janet Berry well. She was so distinctive.

Carol Ashcroft was my girlfriend for a very short while. Everyone was enamoured with her. For the life of me, I cannot remember what she looked like except that she was very pretty.

Nadine lived next door on St John's Street, I believe.

Wow...the good old days....What???
