David A. Prosser loved his childhood. With the freedom to roam and explore, life was a great adventure in early post-war Britain, despite facing poverty and hardship as one of six children. Without the benefit of a decent education, he flitted from job to job when he started work in 1959, rarely staying for longer than three months at a time and holding all manner of roles - potato picking, milking cows, security guard, railway worker and a driver, to name but a few - before inevitably telling his employer to 'Lick 'em on - I'm off.' This is one man's treasured memories of growing up and starting his working life, and the characters, experiences and adventures he found along the way.
