I am at present, writing about my growing up in Princes Risborough, until 1974. So far I've only written 16000 words. It seems a lot, but it's only 34 pages so far.

Anyway, I was delving in my mother 'box of bits' once more, and came upon a newspaper cutting, with the heading......

A Character about Town.......

His name, as he was known locally, was Pidgeon Green, real name of William Green. Attached to this article is a photo.
So if anyone in the ether of the internet picks up this thread, here is the article and photo. It appears he was born in Wendover, and lived in Aylesbury, with his father, George, according to the 1911 census, and is picked up in the 1939 Register in Aylesbury, b1859. Mother named Charlotte, in the 1861 census, and living in Wendower.

Obviously, my mother would have known him, being about town in the 1920' & 30's. Mum was always interested in the goings on in Aylesbury, long after she left when she married my Dad.
