I was 4.5 years old
 
Significant date for me too,@skyvet, but for a separate reason - dear old Mum (RIP) celebrated her 44th B'day that very day. (later died aged 81 but would have reached her 100th birthday today...)

(Self, Mum & Dad with other family, all witnessed your exceptionally smart turnout among the 'supporting cast' in the Summer Term of '63 at the St. V passing out parade/events for BOOTWU Minor. :cool:)

Nothing special about January 63 but late December back in 63, what a very special time for me...

I completed potty training.
