Birth and education Pindling was born on 22 March 1930 to Arnold and Viola Pindling in his grandfather's home in Mason's Addition, Nassau (Nassau, Bahamas), Bahamas. Pindling's father was a native of Jamaica who had earlier immigrated to The Bahamas to join the Royal Bahamas Police Force as a constable. Lynden grew up on East Street in Nassau and attended the elite Government High School from 1943-1946. Following his graduation at the age of 16, he took a job as a junior clerk in the Post Office Savings Bank before travelling to London to study law. He received a Bachelor of Laws (LL. B.) degree from King's College, University of London, in 1952 and was called to the English Bar at the Middle Temple in February 1953 and to the Bahamas Bar in June 1953. At his call to the Bahamas Bar, Pindling publicly dedicated himself to the service of the Bahamas and the Bahamian people 'within and without the realm of pure law'. Tynes also revived doubts about Pindling's birth, claiming that his Bahamian mother was not his biological mother and he had been born outside the Bahamas. ''The Tribune'' published his disclosures and promptly received corroborative information from several sources suggesting that Pindling was actually born in Jamaica and spent the first few years of his life in the care of two aunts before being sent to Nassau to join his father, who was working as a policeman in the Royal Bahamas Police Force. Some of Pindling's former PLP colleagues said the truth about his birth had been known inside the party for years, but that it had been suppressed for political purposes.
