Bernard Mitchell-Luker began life in Chigwell, Essex, towards the end of the Second World War. He was the oldest son of Robert and Eileen Luker and big brother to Sandra and Patrick.

Bernie attended the local village primary school before starting at the legendary Grange Hill secondary in the mid-1950s. It may come as a surprise to many but Bernie hated formal education and would spend as little time as possible at school. His hobbies at this time predictably involved buses, and Sandra remembers regular visits from the truant officer when Bernie had again bunked off for the day and blagged his way on to a bus going in any direction.
