Bernard John LAMBE by Chris Naylor (Member 10121964) on 8-Apr-2004
Does anybody know of Bernard John LAMBE, he called himself Brian. He is of Irish decent, lived in Bootle. He was born in 1933. He was discharged from the Royal Navy in 1961.
He was married to Patricia LONG from Plymouth and had three boys to this marriage. I am the oldest of those.
I'm interested in tracing , or finding out what happened to him.

My gran (Susan Watson) was born in Cowper Street, Bootle in 1890. She was the youngest of six children.

    There are some pictures of pubs and hotels, and some history from 1950 onwards.

    If you do have a degree in media studies it's a pity you don't know how to spell studies! I also have a degree in History and American Studies and have lived in Bootle all my life. I know lots of people who have degrees and live in Bootle. I suggest you are just jealous of people who live in Bootle otherwise you would not be so derogatory in your comments.

    My mothers first job when she left Lander Rd school in 1926 was Lewis' Clothing Factory as a trainee machinist on the mens trousers. All before Irenes time ofcouse. She lived in Empire Rd (gone now).
