Today I was in the Swindon Skoda dealers showroom looking at new cars. I spoke to an obvious old squaddie who told me he enlisted with the South Lancs, went to Korea with the Kings and served for 22 years. His Dad was a Lancashire Fusilier and he was born in 1932 in Wellington Barracks, Bury.
His name was Jim Hougham but he was known locally as "Skoda Jim" because over the years he had bought 87 new Skoda's. He was determined that the Chancellor was not going to get his cash when he snuffed it.
I checked with the dealer and it was true 87 new Skoda's.... changing them as regular as clockwork.
I just wonder did anyone know anything about his Dad who must have served with the LFs during the war?

Maurice
