[Harold Kingston Binns went to commercial college in Leeds and started work as a clerk for Stotts of Oldham in the city centre, then moved to Newcastle upon Tyne before World War II as a salesman of commercial catering equipment. He met Violet Leach through his brother-in-law, a fellow billiard player. She was a dressmaker and worked in a small shop in central Leeds.
After they married in Beeston, Leeds, they settled in Jesmond then Gosforth in Newcastle. Harold enlisted as a volunteer fireman at the start of the War, persuaded by his landlady, and then joined the Royal Navy, in the Fleet Air Arm, as an ‘engineer’ thanks to the powers-that-be assuming he must be one since Stotts was an engineering company! He spent the rest of the War based in a camp near Bootle, Cumbria and was proud to have taught Wrens to drive various sizes of service vehicles!]
[Harold and Violet remained in Newcastle until his retirement, when they moved to Meltham in West Yorkshire, to be near their family. Violet had already suffered with heart problems and died two months after their move. Harold moved to Saltash in Cornwall in 1979 with the family, and then they all moved to Wimborne in Dorset, where he remained until his death.]
