Bill Brown - Author


Bill Brown was born in Brixton, South London, in 1942 and started his own 'business' aged seven selling horse muck, fire wood and wood ash. By the time he was ten he was working in Brixton markets in his spare time and quickly learned how to source anything anyone asked him for. Some weeks Bill brought in more money than his beloved Dad. Bill was a Jack-of-all-trades until 1961 when his uncle encouraged him to join the Fire Service. Billy retired in 1984 having responded to a total of 21,000 incidents and saved many lives. Today he lives in East Sussex with his partner of 21 years, Jane. He has two children and one grandchild.
