Bunch of monkey hangers!

So despised was the Hartlepool U7 team in the local area that in the early months of WW1 the neighbouring villages all chipped in and paid the German Navy to come and shell the place.

My Lord. An event shamefully kept from the history books.

Hate to be pedantic but shouldn't the mods move this to the club section?


Very Happy

Just played for them twice actually.  Once before the war started and once before the place was shelled.  He kinda decided at that point, in consultation with his agent, that hanging around in Hartlepool wouldn't be advantageous to him furthering his playing career in a living capacity.

Well not so much me, t'was the Kriegsmarine.

If it wasn't the U7's (with or without Vickery) why the hell was it shelled?

I could understand the French getting revenge for hanging their monkey, but the Germans must have had a bee in their bonnet about something.

My father was from WEST Hartlepool, he always made that very clear, nothing to do with the other animal abusing lot.

My mother was a colliery lass from just up the road, Blackhall.

Old Hartlepool or the Headland is the inbred area, we don't talk about those folk.

Compared to the colliery villages, no one is inbred. My mother got shunned for a long time because she got engaged to a sailor as they put it, actually chief engineer of a fair sized merchantman; not a miner and worse a foreigner! He came from three miles down the road, or possibly track in the forties.

Most of the family live in Horden these days, they have never accepted being part of Peterlee and they have all married people from Horden.

The colleries/Horden are interestimg places, its like a time warp.

I enjoy the original street naming system. First street, second street, third street.....you get the picture.

They must be a cosmopolitan lot up yonder. I thought the only place that numbers streets like that in New York City. How little I knew............

And a little further up North........Washington (not to be confused with the lesser American version) was once split into districts, numbered 1-18. We're very forward thinking up North don't you know.

Young lad from Burradon (or insert any pit village here) goes to his Dad and announces he's keen on a young lass from Cambois (or insert another pit village here).

Dad is very dubious and the Lad picks up on the vibes - throws in what he thinks is the deal clincher 'But Dad, she's a virgin!' Dad relaxes - a way out -  'Listen Son, if she's not good enough for the Cambois lads, she's definetly not good enough for you!'
