When I began duty as a police cadet in the North Riding of Yorkshire County Constabulary in 1946, I was posted to Guisborough where the Superintendent of the Langbaurgh East Police Division was Walter Wilson, who lived with his daughter Vera, who kept house
For a year she nursed one child, taught six others, fed at least ten people a day and kept house
in a soddy probably no bigger than 10' by 24" with an added room about 9' square.
Since that time, she adds, "our lives changed dramatically: I quit work, raised the kids, and kept house
, while she got a gazillion stock options.
