Survey Training

Leaving home

A few days after passing my driving test I left home in early March 1969. Leaving Manchester Piccadilly, changing at Birmingham New Street (it was new then and just as inhuman) and then heading south I was slightly apprehensive. I was a home-bird - what had I done? After noticing that the landscape had changed dramatically eg the chalk cutting at Winchester station, the train soon arrived in Southampton. Following the instructions I took a bus to Bitterne Park and digs at 20 Whitworth Road.
