Freddie was born 5th March 1932 in South London. His child hood
days was like so many war childrens, growing up where your biggest
asset was your pride. But you usually had to fight for that. The
Authorities gave nothing away in those days and they were the peoples
biggest enemy. Freddie's Father would not tolerate or speak to the
authorities, a Lesson which stuck with Freddie.
Freddie lasted until 1948 without goint to court, then at the ripe
young age of 16, he was up in front of the judge on a GBH charge.
This was the start of a long, long career.
