I got rheumatic fever in the summer of 1955 and missed the whole 3rd year summer term. I was confined to bed for a long time and my parents bought a television then and used to carry me downstairs to watch it: I developed a love of cricket: and, once recovered, I would spend a couple of hours after Sunday school watching the local club playing on its grounds next to the church. I used to listen to Mrs Dales Diary and the Archers in my huge bedroom whilst ill, and tried to read a lot, difficult with a book stand.
