“Betty Swords and myself. We were married the following year, 1959. We were probably heading to the Royal Theatre, where there was a stage show, the Royalettes, and you’d see a movie there as well. I knew that Betty was the woman for me; I was in love with her. More than likely she got a birdie on the cheek at the cinema in the midst of all the smoke. We had five children and eleven grandchildren. Still happily married and still giving her the odd birdie on the cheek.”
