I was playing along the canal at every opportunity, my best friend was drowned more or less at the bottom of their garden, I suppose we were aged about 9/10, I remember bonfire nights, the fire was always opposite JG school and I used to guard it in case it was set alight before time. Thanks for sharing your memories with us.

I seem to recall someone being drowned, but don't know much more about it than that, I do remember the bonfire it was on what we called the bombed buildings, thats what it was a gap where a house had been.

Meerkat. Do you remember the Sutcliffe family? The two lads were Alan and Norman they both went to JG school, Alan was a motorbike fanatic. They must have lived next door to you, or pretty near.

I don't recall the Sutcliffe family, it seems they would have been a lot older than me if the lads were into motorbikes and we moved when I was about 5 years old.

I noticed the sign for the Silver Sword, popularly known as "The Dirty Dagger" although I never actually had the opportunity to go in.

It was always very dark in there walrus apart from some neon signs over the DJ - probably so you couldn't see what you were standing in. And the trip downstairs to the toilets was always a hazardous one!

I was in Canley Cemetery at the weekend........... it's tragic to see Big Jim Holton's grave. I doubt it has been visited since he was interred. It looks unloved and neglected. A shame.

Coventry city centre is a dump. It's a complete mess. Nothing has worked. Gibson's plan has been a disaster, and now in its final death throes.
