The mamvee happened one night when Yvonne had had too many glasses of wine, and she was playing a joke on me.

I had a business transfer business in upper Dickinson st in the 80s. The only time I've been connected with St Helens was in the late 1950s when I was at West Park school for a year. I'm in my 70s

I remember Frank Vose well, peter g, from my days at St Benedict's. Great headmaster, although he could let rip with his cane! Back in 1961 we were all playing rugby in the boys' playground and I told my mates to 'Put the posts up' while I dropped a goal. I did, but the ball went sailing through Frank Vose's office window. He rushed outside, caned the lot of us on the spot and sent a letter home to all our parents asking for sixpence from each family to pay for the broken window. As I say, a great headmaster!

Happy days, eh, peter g! Jimmy Mulligan never had a rugby ball out of his hands. I was in their John's year, and we were on the very first rugby league team at St Ben's. I have very fond memories of playing rugby with both John and Jimmy on Hazelmere Gardens in Borsdane Avenue, often playing there till it was so dark we couldn't see the ball! Sadly, both John and Jimmy are no longer with us. Great mates, great times.

I was also at the funeral, peter g. Never seen St Ben's so packed. A great tribute to Jimmy, with so many there to pay their respects. John died a few years later in 2012. RIP lads.
