In brief, my Grandad was in the heavy rescue squad in London. His nickname was Dracula because he had an uncanny knack of being able to find people under wreckage, alive or dead! He also used to fill up his boots with sixpences, from blown utility meters, as he had six children at home and many mouths to feed.
