to Washington,
Tyne Wear, England
Many people, like myself, no longer live in Washington. We grew up there but for all sorts of
reasons we left the town. In my case I came to live in Adelaide, Australia. Our memories, however,
never leave us and there is always the pull to return. Washington is in our blood. This web page is
dedicated to all of the people of Washington, home and away, past and present.

and yes, my dad was an apprentice instructor
for the NCB at Dame Margaret's Home.)
