193/366 The Gosport Journals

Out on my walk this morning, I stopped to have a chat with this gentleman. This was about 0630. He’d been there since midnight and hadn’t caught anything, but was not in the least disheartened. He was on the verge of packing up and looking forward to going home to wake up his kids.

I’m still reading the Gosport Journals. I’m about halfway through, reading leaflets that were written around 1973. Understandably, given that it is the Gosport and Historic Records Society the contents of the leaflets are not contemporary. They focus on the 18th & 19th century where solid records are most likely to be available. Indeed on one piece where I have identified a potential topic for a vlog I have found a news article from 1891, which I suspect forms the basis for this article and a book about Gosport that I read a while ago.

The leaflets are interesting, and I am very much enjoying reading the leaflets, but I’m not sure if they were what I was expecting. For a start, I did have a quick look at the volume before I bought it, so I had a rough idea of what I was getting. I think I may have commented on this before, but the leaflets were written between 1970 – 76. I think what I wanted to read was about what was happening in Gosport then. This is 50 years ago, half a century. At a period in my life which was, shall we just say interesting. So, now is the time to write about then. I think I can access newspaper articles from that time. Can I get at the council minutes from that time? I shall explore that. That could be next years blogging project. I’ll consider that.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
