Their house (a large house)was in Primrose Dene. My dad was a street bookie who worked for them. I think Billy (who ran the Jarrow Office for his Dad) was one of a large family.
He was a generous person and gave me £10 went I went to France in 1958 and £20 when I went to Russia in 1961. He also paid my parents fines when the Police raided our house (early 60's)to find my parents taking bets at home.
