Description

After the jubilation of the street parties and the partial demobilisation of our fighting troops, the whole world, which included our Empire and US allies, were astounded when the electors of the UK deposed our Wartime Leader to Victory, Winston Churchill, and substituted a Labour controlled government in 1945. The shock to the United States was not highlighted at the time but when the action was analysed, they feared in their own country a backlash of workers' rights and felt that similar actions would sweep across the USA.A country worthy of heroes was promised and did not follow after 1945. What followed were nine years of rationing and making do with patchwork clothing, furnishings and low standards of housing. No replacement housing was on the horizon and high rise flats loomed as a way ahead with little enthusiasm by those delegated to live in them as the vacancies appeared. It also marked the start of the Nationalisation of all the commodities, the railways, mines, electricity and the health service.

Author Biography

Born at the end of the First World War in London's Dockland area, he suffered serious injury as an infant which caused Infantile Paralysis that affected his entire right side (and still exists after eight decades). Having retired at the early age of 57 he was able to enjoy more time with his dear wife Lilian which, with hindsight, was a blessing because unfortunately Lilian developed Alzheimer's. During the time he was caring for her he decided to put all his memories into print, using typewriter and audio tape, embracing the new technology of computers. In the year 2000 he lost his dear wife and in his eighties started to suffer from Macular Degeneration and his eyesight started to fail. 'After 1945' was largely produced by voice recognition software on his computer.
