on Batton Street, Aylestone.
lived during the war in Batten Street, off Aylestone Road, with
the large (still extant) Gas tank, about 200 yards away. So, my
mum and dad always felt we were a likely target! From 1943 on, a
U.S.A.A.F. stores depot took over the woodworking factory, opposite
our terrace, and as a kid, I had some good times with them.
