Spring was beautiful

Originally from the Commonwealth of Dominica, John travelled over to England in 1958 to join the RAF and see the world. His career with the RAF spanned 13 years.


Whereas the majority of Dominicans...or Caribbeans tell you they arrived here there was snow on the ground and it was terribly cold you know and all that. I arrived here in April because my grandmother had warned me about that getting here while it was cold, so I arrived just before the buds were budding from the trees...and that was beautiful, arriving here then.
