But the fact was that he had never seen his father or mother or at least he had no recollection Of them. And he had never seen his sister Winnie, who was born in the West Indies. One Of the boys had told Jimmy she must be a little black girl, and Jimmy did not quite know whether to believe him or not.
When he was two years Of age, his father and mother left England.
