Subject: RE: The late great Lonnie Donegan (1931-2002)
Well my first school was less than two miles from Whitechapel tube and I spent many a long drunken happy evening in the pubs round there, especially with my owld mate Seamus, who, sadly, died a couple of years ago. One of those pubs was where that Kray fella shot someone dead in the bar...I won't dwell... Another of those ale houses had the finest gents toilets on the planet. All massive marble and brass...I wonder whether it's still there...

I am going back just shy of 50 years, mind...
