Do you remember 1973?
Or were you still a twinkle in your parents’ eye?
Albie Edwards remembers:
- Penny sweets cost a penny and he had to save 6p for a Mars bar.
- Older kids wore flared trousers and shirts, many with flower prints and pointed collars.
- Charlie George, Arsenal forward, was his idol.
- David Bowie and The Rolling Stones played non stop on his mum’s stereo.
5. It was the year Albie wandered too far from home and came face to face with death.
For Albie Edwards 1973 was a year he’d rather forget. He’d just turned seven when his life changed, a young boy who witnessed an event which he buried in the depths of his mind.
Buried Memories, a short story, it’s Summer 1992 when we meet Albie Edwards in his first murder investigation as an Acting Detective Sergeant. One question asked by a rookie evokes childhood memories Albie has managed to bury. Lost in thoughts, Albie struggles with the memories from the Winter of 1973 and the events that changed his life.
Do either of these years hold any significance for you?
