John Marston remembers playing in the areas that had been bombed by the Luftwaffe in the Second World War: the houses in such area were destroyed and never rebuilt. Among their pleasures was inventing a new type of ball that would bounce exceptionally high in the air. Brenda Allen remembers how they would put the ball in their mothers’ nylon and tie it up, tightening it as the hole in the nylon increased, until eventually it would cause a lot of pain when it hit them!
