As a child of the '50s, growing up on a council estate in Southend-on-Sea, the Green Belt was at my front door. It was the boundary that kept developers out, but not the inhabitants. Rebel's lane was the gateway, winding its way from the end of Archer Close through farmland into rural pastures, rivers, woods, brickworks, WWII bunkers and into the adventures of young minds. This website is simply a record of my adventures both of the past, as I remember them, as well as of the present. It is not a blog for discussion, but positive feedback through e-mail is welcome.

Where are his bones?

As we ponder and reflect upon the loss of so many through the horrors of war, if there is a God, would he leave us comfortless? Although the 1914-18 war was of our own choosing, as it came to a close a revelation was given. To a man who experienced many tragedies, as his life drew to a close, God opened his eyes to what lies beyond. First listen to his grandson, M. Russell Ballard for background to the revelation. Then read for the first time or again the Vision of the Redemption of the Dead received by the prophet Joseph F Smith
