Fist Of Destiny – Memoirs of a Martial Artist

Karl Lancaster

Fist Of Destiny – Memoirs of a Martial Artist – II was born (no surprise there then) on 13th November 1955 and, after some argument, named Karl Lancaster. My father wanted me to be called Charles, but my mother had other ideas, so they settled on Karl which is the Germanic equivalent anyway.

Things did not go right from the off as my name was to be spelled with a ‘c’, the Scandinavian spelling, but the registrar mucked it up.

My father was John Patrick Lancaster. He hated the Patrick bit, his mother had been born in Ireland near Cork, but as he hated the Irish, he would never accept that she was truly a Celt. If you ever wanted to cause an argument, you had only to bring up his Celtic ancestry and he was off!

As the name Lancaster implies the family was English and probably originally from Lancashire, although no one could remember back that far.

Apparently, according to my father, the more recent ancestors of the Lancaster family had been Fishermen, and it was a family tradition to take a Scandinavian bride. However, as I allude to in my foreword, we often make assumption or even down right fiction fact.
