    Born into a family of costermongers, Alf Dole (1930-2013) was the grandson of the first Pearly King of St Pancras, and his proudest moment was putting on his own special suit as the Pearly Prince at the age of seven. His memoir vividly recalls a vanished world of pub singalongs, hop-picking summers in Kent and wartime camaraderie. With a foreword by the singer-songwriter Suggs.
