To get a mortgage on a house in London ... First time ... I went round the naval docks most of all, Rosyth, Sheerness, Chatham, Portsmouth, Davenport ... First time I docked in London was 1955 and my then wife was teaching in London. She was from the Midlands and we got a mortgage on a house in 1958. And we lived in the same house from 1958 to 1994, living in London. My two daughters and my son are still in London. In fact, my son’s in the Met Police and youngest daughter’s a solicitor in Kent and my eldest daughter, she lives in Surrey. And they come up from time to time. My son’s got seven year old twins, a boy and a girl, and they come up here and spend the summer holidays with us so that’s rather nice.
