Somehow I knew this was my life now. I’d made my bloody bed and now I had to lie in it. I’d chosen this life and that’s how it would be from now on. The system would try to crush me and all I could do was refuse to be destroyed. It wouldn’t be easy. We’d be up at 6am every day for a cold shower before compulsory physical training come rain, snow or shine, and mostly it seemed to piss it down. We were marched everywhere military-style, slouching spines pushed straight, shoulders back, eyes forward.
Thank you. Additionally, thanks must go to the people who have been there for me every step of the way. Friends like Arnie Fouste, now sadly deceased and deeply missed. His friendship can never be replaced. Likewise to Dawn Hodges for her support, Patricia Edwards whose encouragement gave me optimism for the future, and to my mates ‘Big’ Paul Foley and Billy Sprague for their endless loyalty and friendship. A very special mention must go to Danny Woollard for inspiration, and for helping me remember the stories.
Now I was simply a number and a surname. That number would follow me through the system from day one. A damp towel was flung at me and I patted myself down quickly. Our clothes were replaced with prison-issue underwear, socks, rough shirts and trousers – all grey, all itchy and all uncomfortable – and rough army surplus blankets for our beds in the dormitory. No privacy, no luxuries, piss-poor food, everything done at double-quick time and the screws screaming at you from dawn to dusk, that was Kidlington.
