Albert Tatlock: "They played brass bands when we came marching home in 1918. They promised us "Homes Fit for Heroes" to live in...and "Every Man an Acre and a Cow". Well my home's just as it were, my cow never came, they've pinched me allotment and there isn't a Brass Band between here and Belle Vue."
