Swift’s Hill Bertie: “Gordon Bennett, Bobby! It’s chucking it down; the roads are flooded; you can only see out of one eye and we are driving to Swift’s Hill. One thing is certain. I am not going up that bleedin hill with you. It will ruin my mohair!”
78 and Fulham Being greedy, Bobby celebrated his 78th Birthday for four whole days. The theatre; South Bank; the theatre; Brick Lane; The Cemetery. And finally – a special treat. Going back to his first love to watch a big football match.
78 Plus One They woke in the Brick Lane Hub the day after his birthday (“78 plus one“), with the music of the Drifters still ringing in their ears. The Drifters “Under the Boardwalk”.
Bertie: “Did you have a nice birthday, Bobby?” Bobby: “Bonnet de douche, Bertie.” (Excellent)
