Geoffrey James Hurford was born in 1921 in Damerham, Hampshire, at
a time when a 45-mile to the gallon brand new Rover 2-seater car
could be bought for 230 guineas and the cinema was electrified by a
new star in Rudolph Valentino. In his teens, he contracted
osteomyelitis and spent several years in hospital undergoing
traumatic operations. By the time he was 21, he finally made the
decision to have his leg amputated. It is a heroic and entertaining
true story of a tailor who, as he approaches his 81st year, carries
on working from his Dickensian tiny front room in Salisbury.
