  1. I know Just William was 1920s to 1970s in time span. Just goes to show childhood had constant themes though. Spud guns, pea shooters and catapults hey! Can’t do that outside, running around in the fresh air, with a gaming pad.

    1. Childhoods are so different now, I spent most of mine outside, now children spend most of the time indoors playing on electronic gadgets 😊

  2. Soldiers are very similar to ‘Cowboys and Indians’ – I preferred being an ‘Injun’.(The baddys)
    Near my home was a derelict site of an old cotton mill. Perfect wild playground. All that was left was the Concrete ‘Engine’ Beds – natural mountains. We called then ‘Indian beds’ where we would hide and sweep out to attack the cowboys. You have a knack to bring out happy memories.
