Born at Haywards Heath, Sussex, England, November 13, 1942.

The son of Kathleen and Dennis Elliott (RAF pilot).

My father was killed during WW2 when I was 10 days less than 1 year old.

During the war we lived at 1 Park Road, Haywards Heath, my grandparents home. On one occasion, the back of the house was damaged when a German bomber let one go on his way up to London one night. Everyone survived, and I think there were...
