Memories of Leslie

Les had a bad start in life. He was born to his widowed Mother, 3 moths after his Father died during the war. He refused to let this stop him from achieving what he wanted to do with his life. He started working at 16 with the forestry commission, at 23 he started work in the Royal Parks as a Tree feller an Pruner (Tree Surgeon). Worked upwards to eventually become the General Foreman of Richmond Park. At this point he was required to live in the Park, in one of the Gate Lodges, in order to fulfill the full requirements of the position. When he was given early retirement at 50, due to grounds maintenance being put out to contract he then obtained a position at The Richmond Golf Club as a Woodsman?Gardener, which he held until his full retirement at 65. We then decided to leave the Richmond area and move to Wales, where he has spent the last 7½ very happy years and made some very good friends.
