Kind regards,

I can remember a second hand shop on the corner of Orange st/Bell st. There was a tyre depot at the top of Orange st, my dad worked in there.

Mick i did not mean to confuse you i think Mick Rourke did in fact have a short spell in the police force Mick worked on removals as a second job as many other firemen had 2 jobs because quite often they would sleep at work when not called out.I am not 100% of my facts but thats as i remember . You are probably more confused now I think Mick Rourke was year above you not sure if he wasnt a prefect or head boy

Just saw this, so sad, I'd no idea Mick had died. I knew him from Trent Bridge and later found someone I knew at work, Elaine, was married to him.

RIP Mick.
