Re: Are you a scouser?
My dad used to say he was partly responsible for the bombing of Liverpool by the Luftwaffe. His Home Guard platoon (he was 17 in 1940) were guarding the Runcorn Railway bridge with three rifles...and the Luftwaffe took one look at them and cleared off down river. He denied rumours that it was the docks they were really after.
My Mum was born in Liverpool, but spent a lifetime without even a trace of a scouse accent, because her family were really from Middlewich.
As one of the older members of this forum I can remember crossing the Mersey on the transporter bridge at Runcorn, and all the hoo hah when they built the "New Runcorn Bridge"..(or Scousers escape route No 3.)
