King's Cross Kid : A Childhood Between the Wars, Paperback

King's Cross Kid : A Childhood Between the Wars Paperback



Ninety-three-year-old Victor Gregg has had a rich and fascinating life.

King's Cross Kid follows his London childhood from the age of five, when life was so hard that the Salvation Army arranged for young Vic to be taken to the Shaftesbury Home for Destitute Children.

Home again a year later, the scallywag years of late childhood began.

Then, after the years of street gangs and run-ins with the law, Vic leaves school at fourteen and his real adventures start, and with them a working-class apprenticeship in survival.

Ending with his enlistment in the army on the day of his eighteenth birthday, this prequel to the bestselling Rifleman will appeal to the many readers who were charmed by Victor Gregg's engaging, honest and warm voice.
