Before the war  and before the family moved to Broadway Parade my father lived on Frenchpark Street.
 I remember him telling me that one of the neighbours was a very old man who was an ex solider and he claimed to be a survivor of the Charge of the Light Brigade.
My Dad I think really wanted to believe him but he wasn't sure. The math for the story could be just about right. It would be cool if true.

The 'Village' was flooded in 1970.  Every street along lower Broadway had water in it. I lived in Ebor St. It happened over a Saturday night when the 'Blackie' overflowed due to heavy rain.  My Dad called me at about 7am Sunday morning to get out of bed and when I looked down the stairs there was about a foot of water in the house.  ? How many people out there know how the 'Village' got it's name.  I do, but it will be interesting to see any responses.

 hi larry,  did you know the roberts who lived in ebor street he was a member off the 38 b.b.
             he had a sister margaret.

Can't disagree with that.
 
By the way could your grandfather he the same old solider whom my father  talked about?

Hi patsy, I lived in utility street, left there in 1969 to live in dunmurry.I now live in Nottingham , my maiden name was Rodgers. I think you may be a little older than me.,as linfield school became Blythefield school. My aunts and uncle went to linfield. Their names are Margaret and Thelma Mercer, twins. And Raymond Mercer. Margaret lives in Canada . Your name doesn't ring a bell with me, was your husband related to lynda McCann from Bentham street? I'm new to this as well so good luck. JW.
