About this memory

Robert Kent (b.1929).

“Possibly late 1940s or early 1950s. Location unknown, possibly [when he was living at West Barnes] where [Robert] trained to be a jockey. Being kicked in the head by a horse ended that career choice, and he trained to be a motor mechanic, working in the Bridge Garage in Manderston Street, Leith, for 25 years.” – Richard Kent [2008]
