I must be getting old, I thought someone in my age group would have remembered Arthur Braddock. I knew Arthur as a builders labourer who worked for my cousin E.A. Boothby, before that he had worked on various farms in the area. I recall he could neither read nor write, he would use a cross to sign his name.
I first met Arthur when I started work in 1957 and he stayed with us till around 1964 when he retired through ill health.
Arthur lodged with the Etchells family at Blackhill Gate Farm, his only interests were playing Whist and watching Football, especially Whaley.
Arthur had no teeth, yet he could eat almost anything, I have seen him bite into a apple no trouble.
He always wore a cap, a thick army overcoat and Wellingtons and smoked thick twist in his pipe, does this ring any bells to anyone. A.B.
