770 – Gosport

On Friday I had my Covid Booster at 1450 and my flu jab at 1630. On Saturday, I go up Saturday and felt rough, very fatigued and I ached whenever I moved. I went outside once, otherwise I spent nearly all day sat in the lounge.

All that meant that I didn’t go to the Alverstoke Michaelmas fayre which is frustrating because this annual event is really quite good.

Anyhow, my wife went, and she came back with a present for me, a book ; Soldiers of the Queen (Gosport as a Garrison Town) by Lesley Burton and Beryl Peacey. I have suspended my normal reading list for this book.

I’m only a part way through this book but I love the picture that the authors have painted of the town; they describe how as the military came in the prosperity increased, employment was good, shops were busy the social life excellent. These were the early days in Queen Victoria’s reign, and before the Palmerston forts were built. Lesley and Beryl paint a picture of a town full of vitality. It was really nice to read.

I’d quite like to have the ability to write something like 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.
