the notes of Alfred John Boon:
a clerk who worked for
Wolfe Bros, power tool manufacturers, Stamford St,
Blackfriars, and his last position was as a submarine cable tester
at STC, Woolwich. He was also a good footballer and turned out for
Erith and Belvedere, in the London League, amongst other teams.
During the war he was a clerk in the R.E.M.E. He married Winifred
Smith, from Norwood, in 1941. They had one son, Michael.
died on 10.9.74, a couple of weeks short of his 63rd birthday. He
had previously had an operation for anxiety neurosis, a lobectomy.
This changed his character, he became hard to get on with and
hygiene mad, continuously washing his hands and shaking them dry.
He would use a tissue to open a door.
