Personal View of Bob Le Brocq, Constable of St Helier, interviewed by Geraldine des Forges. His family history goes back to 1480 on a direct line and back to 1097 before that on Jersey. He was born at Millbrook Nursing Home but his family farmed at Spring Valley, St Ouen. There were eight boys and one girl in the family-he has a twin brother Lester Le Brocq. His parents separated and he came to live in St Helier with his mother in 1940 with a sister and two of his brothers. They lived in Great Union Road for 18 months and then to New Street and St Saviour's Road. During the second world war he was taken to Brighton Road School-his first taste was to get an injection which put him off. Remembers coming in to town and the area around Great Union Road, New Street and St Saviour's Road-remembers playing on the steps of number 84 with his twin brother. The occupying forces had the Woodville Hotel and they used to use a wagon and two horses and the person who was controlling the two horses collided with their railings. Remembers collecting wood from Victoria College, sea water at Havre des Pas, collecting tar from the gas works. It was a hard time-in the summer he spent all his time on the beach. Went to a variety of schools from Brighton Road School he went to Halkett Place Infants, St James' School, La Motte Street and St Helier Boys. As they moved across the town he moved to different schools-it upset his schooling. During the occupation he wasn't frightened of the german soldiers. He remembers a german soldier called Pierre Schumacher going rabbiting with his brothers in St Ouen. Remembers the liberation-a week before liberation in Simon Place the residents helped themselves from a german store of charcoal. Never knew anything else when he experienced the occupation-is now very careful of his belongings. He went to La Motte Street School as a child and did enjoy some subjects especially mathematics and geography. First Record-Killing me Softly performed by the Mantovani Orchestra. Remembers liberation day and the rushign around that took place-he went down to the Pomme d'Or Hotel. Remembers a person going across a wooden bridge by Commercial Buildings and it giving way and him breaking both his legs. Remembers going around to Pier Road and seeing the North African prisoners of war celebrating liberation. Still celebrates liberation every year. He left school at 15 and started to learn the building trade with Horn Brothers in Winchester Street. He moved on to other firms-he was working for a firm that collapsed and found himself out of work at 18 and took the first job that came along-he worked for 2 months as a kitchen porter in a hotel. He originally wanted to go into farming but his mother wanted him to learn a trade. From the hotel he joined the Telephone Department for 5½ as a cable jointer. He met his wife Eileen, who was a nurse at Overdale Hospital, while his mother was in isolation. They met in Christmas 1958 and got married in November 1959. Life was hard when they first got married-had to work 80-90 hours a week. He has two children Juliet and Carl and would have liked to have spent more time with them. Second Record-La Mere. Later he opened a guest house in St Helier after having moved from St Ouen. Took a 2 year course at Highlands College in catering and hotel management. After 10 years they moved to St John's Road, Mont à L'Abbé and then St Brelade-he has lived in 6 parishes in Jersey. When he was in a guest house he stood as deputy for St Helier No 1 District twice but didn't get in. He then served as a constables officer for 3 years and then centenier for 9 years-he enjoyed working with youngsters and helping them. Being a parent stood him in goodstead. He likes giving something back to the community. Third Record-Cherish by Kool and the Gang. He decided he would like to stand as Constable of St Helier and was successful. It's a demanding job and he's getting used to it-he hopes for a freer atmosphere in the island. Has various duties-normally starts about 8.30/9-answers enquiries, serves on committees including the Public Services Committee, Defence Committee, État Civil, the Working Party on Need, Joint Manual Workers Council and the Occupation and Liberation Committee. The Occupation and Liberation Committee is getting ready for the 50th anniversary of liberation. Battle of Flowers causes a lot of work for the parish but not for him-officials from St Helier attend the meetings for him. The job encroaches on his personal life-he has a 5 year old grandson who he plays with. He enjoys goong out for lunch with friends. He enjoys travelling-in 1973 and 1976 he went to Kenya with his children and wife, he's been to Italy, Germany, America four times, Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong. Likes the Far East. Would like to visit New Zealand and Hawaii. Would like to see life in St Helier freer in the future and that people were more positive in Jersey. Has worked hard on the attractiveness of St Helier-thinks it has improved and hopes to make it even cleaner. Feels he has had a rewarding life with a good family-would not want to change anything. Fourth Record-Key Largo by Bertie Higgins.
