Leaning on a Lamp Post is the true story of a period in my early childhood, set in England during the winter of 1952. In many ways this book flows on from For God, England & Ethel, (another of my factual historical novels) the story of my grandfather's service with 6 Squadron when it was fighting over the Western Front during WW1, as my grandparents feature extensively in this book.
Though most of the book is set in London, there are three large 'flashback' chapters, two set in the early nineteen hundreds in Basingstoke, UK, in which Fred and Ethel (the main characters in For God, England & Ethel) tell the story of how they met and a third chapter set in Reading, UK, in 1944, four days after the D-Day landings and featuring my parents, Arthur and Denise Johnson.
