“The sounds of weeping were all around Sam and the tears began to flow down his cheeks too as they led each coffin back out where they were all carried to the mass grave site. It took fifteen minutes before every coffin was lowered into the ground.

“Almighty God, may your assurance of eternal life be with these people now and always; Ashes to ashes, dust to dust Amen.’

The crowds started to disperse and Jackie caught sight of the Headmaster Harold Jackson and all of the teaching staff. He went over with his wife and Sam. They all shook hands and The Headmaster gave Sam a pat on the shoulder. “You are one brave boy lad said Mr Jackson there are not many boys your age here today to represent our school; I am very proud of you lad.’

Jackie nodded then led Jackie back to the car and back home where Jackie dropped him off.

“See you at school tomorrow Jackie, and thanks for my lunch Katherine.’

“You’re welcome bonny lad.’

Jackie went inside then stood at the door whilst Jackie turned the car around then drove away. He closed the door then went to his room he picked up the French book and began to learn the next ten pages.


Geordie Johnson and his crew all headed back to the King Street club where they were holding the wake. There were literally mountains of food because every neighbour had baked something to bring along. The club had to send out and get more plates to put food onto as there wasn’t enough to go around. There room was packed so they opened up the hall upstairs so that everyone could fit in.

Geordie and his crew had a good drink that afternoon which went on until closing at 11.30 p.m. later that night. The food that was left was shared out to those who wanted it rather than it thrown away.


It was six o’clock when Nancy arrived and Sam eagerly let her in.’

I have made you a nice cup of tea Nancy and a warm cheese scone.

“That’s nice of you.’

Nancy took off her coat then went into the scullery and sat at the table with Sam whilst he poured out the tea.

He buttered two scones and gave them to Nancy and waited for her approval.

“These are gorgeous Sam; you are a very good cook.’ Your mother should be very proud of you.’

“I’m sure she is.’

Did you read the first book that I gave Tom last night?’

“Ok then go get the book and I will test you on it.’
