Family housewarming party in January 1954 (although we had slept together many years before*), asked her for a date, successfully, we married in 1956. have four children, twelve grandchildren, one great grandchild, still very happy.


* for those with evil minds, it was during the London blitz when her family had been bombed out and came to live with us. She was three, me five.

At a mutual friend's party 16 July 1966. All the lads had been watching England beat Mexico 2-0 on the way to winning the world cup against germany when the future Mrs LujonSA tripped over my outstretched feet as I re-lived the game with my oppo. I picked her up, dusted her down and got her a drink. We went out the following day where she somehow conived to give me her address. Six months later I joined the mob and three years after that we married. I binned the Navy in 1990 but we are still together out here in rural France more than 42 years after our first meeting.

Isn't it about time that England won the world cup again?

I first met Mrs RS at the Tower Ballroom in New Brighton whilst I was on leave in 1962. I remember that Little Richard was topping the bill that Saturday night followed by Rory Storm & the Hurricanes. I could hardly believe my luck trapping such a smooth looking bird thus making a perfect end to a great night. Made arrangements to take her out the following Wednesday but I nearly blew it in the interim period. She worked in an office in Liverpool and whilst she was leaving work on the Tuesday evening to catch the train home she had occasion to cross Tarleton Street on her way to the station.

Tarleton Street was home of to one of the numerous Yates Wine Lodges in the city where I had spent the entire afternoon with my oppo getting completely shit faced on 'Batman Specials' - large Cape whites. She arrived just in time to see yours truly, in uniform, lying in the middle of the road with my hands on the zebra crossing shouting to the stream of pedestrians “Get off my f****** piano!†Needless to say she was not very impressed and went on her way totally ignoring me and the legless state I was in. I wasn’t even aware she had witnessed the drunken performance, until her girl friend at work informed me two days later when I rang her office. Suffice to say she hadn’t turned up for our rendezvous on the Wednesday evening either.

With desperation setting in, I now resorted to cracking my snivelling valve wide open and doing some serious damage control with smooth talking sessions on the phone and the sending of flowers etc. Glad to report it all worked out and all these years on we are still happily together and I still love her to bits; she is definitely the best thing that ever happened to this old submariner that’s for sure.

Current Strife........Saw her sitting at a bar doing the Daily Telegraph Cryptic crossword many years ago. Leaned across and said "1 across is Communion" She was stunned that anyone frequenting the place [apart from her - ex-jenny scablifter] had the intelligence to do a cryptic! Good chat up line tho' as we married and travelled the world courtesy of HM.
