THE recent story about an air pistol being taken into a school, Guardian, July 5, reminded me of my primary school in the 50s.
Many children lived in a house full of war trophies or had a relative doing National Service. Consequently, we had a flourishing playtime trade swapping bullets, inert hand grenades and other such ordnance.
Few guns were actually brought into class but after school we would visit friends where the hidden hand guns and bayonets would be secretly played with. Oh happy, innocent days. And nobody died.
