      Sophie and Charlie lived in Leigh Road and Forest Drive West, Leyton, London (no .... not at the same time).
      On the south side of Leigh Road is a recreation ground which we crossed to reach Aunt Sophie's and coming from the East End it always seemed that we were going on holiday to the country, particularly as we arrived at Leyton Midland Road Station on a steam train. I recall that they had a lilac tree in their back garden and the scent always brings back fond memories.
      I always had the idea that uncle Charlie was a car dealer - there was a Rolls Royce "Spririt of Ecstacy", or something similar, on their mantelpiece.

  • NOTES:
      Apart from playing the upright bass, Bernie was a keen photographer and got me interested by showing me the advantages of the single lens reflex camera. Some of his work can be seen on my music pages as he photographed one of the folk groups in which I was playing: The Crystal Creek Trio. The photographs were taken in Aunt Sophie's lounge. Bernie never married.

  • NOTES:
    • Lionel was the drummer and comedian with Jerry Allen & his Trio - resident musicians on the long running A.T.V. programme "Lunchbox" hosted by actress Noel Gordon. He later joined the Johnny Patrick Big Band and (jazz) Quintet and was musical director at the Pebble Mills studio in Birmingham where he also had a music/drum shop, "Ringway Music" (in the Bullring). I popped in to see him when I was in Birmingham for a recording session (about 1966) and that was the last time we had contact.

    • I only saw Lionel play a few times - once in concert at Battersea Park for the Festival of Britain (1951) I think with Nat Gonella's band, once at the Hackney Empire with Jerry Allen and his Trio and then at the Marquee Club in Wardour Street in London's West End with the Johnny Patrick Quintet. I never thought at the time that a couple of years later I'd be playing there myself (see The Marquee). However I do recall, at the age of 4 or 5, being taught how to hold the drumsticks "properly" and playing drums at my very first jam session in Auntie Sophie's front room, with Lionel's dad, Uncle Charlie on piano and his brother Bernie on upright bass. That must have been my first introduction to playing music. I later "upgraded" to guitar, banjo and mandolin (to name but a few). I understand that Lionel went on to form his own group playing on luxury cruise ships. As far as I know Lionel never married but my father thought he may have.

    • I recently found a discography showing some recordings of songs which Lionel wrote or collaborated in writing and recorded.
