Biography

Bernard was a sickly child, so he was sent off to Wales to recuperate. When he came back to London his mother used to bribe him to go to the hospital by taking him to a magic shop.

He worked as a professional magician for 50 years before retiring.

He was a member of the group that used to meet every Saturday in London with Jack Avis, Roy Walton and Alex Elmsley.

The Bobby Bernard False Cut is in Card College Vol. 1, page 58 entitled The False Swing Cut.
