June.    In 1944, my cousin,  John Reid, was a Co-Op Milkman and I used to meet him outside in Ravenhill avenue.   His Run was Short Strand, Bridge End,  Mountpottinger road and Madrid St.  I helped him School holidays and every Saturday for a couple of years.  I knew a girl called Ruth Buchanan, lived, corner of Rosebery Road and Ravenhill avenue.about 1950.
