The Krays on holiday in Jersey.<br />
<br />
A diary kept by the tragic wife of Reggie Kray describing her hellish life with the gangster including having to share a bed with a gun and a flick-knife has emerged.<br />
<br />
Long-suffering Frances Kray wrote of the constant abuse and drunken temper bouts she endured at the hands of the East End villain.<br />
<br />
Describing how Reggie kept a cache of deadly weapons in their bedroom, she said: "(He) came back night time. By the side of bed gun, sword, knife, chopper, flick-knife.<br />
<br />
"He used to sleep with flick-knife under his pillow."<br />
<br />
The diary along with letters and photographs are being auctioned tomorrow (Weds) at Gorringes, East Sussex.
