at home, 8
Crescent, Rowley Regis, at

when born I was 8˝ pounds. My weight now? You've no chance!
William Tromans McBain [there's
a reason why I took these two Christian names -
here if you wish to know more]
Infant & Junior schooling:
This was at the 'British School' on the Stourbridge Road, Halesowen
Secondary Education was at the 'Boys School' in Windsor
Further Education was at the Halesowen College [for the
first year it was based at Colley Lane, Cradley but then we moved to the
new purpose built premises in Whittingham Road, Halesowen] where I
took my 'A' Levels.
At the age of 5 weeks I was rushed into The
Guest Hospital, Dudley with
but I was too weak for the
needed operation. Within a week, however, the hospital said it was
essential I have that operation and thus my uncle Lol, a Methodist local
preacher, was called from work to christen me in hospital just in case I
didn't survive the operation.
|The family moved to 52 Hawne Lane, Halesowen
when I was 6
Mom began attending Short Cross Methodist church, in
Attwood Street Halesowen, and so it was there I started to go to their Sunday School.
