Walter Perkis lived in Victoria Road, Bitterne, not Bitterne Park. Victoria Road is now called Chatsworth Road, and for the last 35 years my husband and I have lived in the house that Walter Perkis lived in. Susan Ward
My grandfather, Reg Riddles, was billeted with Walter Perkis' family during WWII when he (my granddad) served as a police constable with the city's police force. My father remembers meeting Walter on several occasions during and after the war. He was known by all then as 'Pop.'
