[COLOR="Navy"]Hi Barry.

A belated Happy MMXIX to 'You and Yours'.

Would appear we are of 'similar youth/age' and without wishing to appear pedantic, have extremely vivid ~ be they early childhood ~ memories of same. First six months 'in there looking out' then losing mum to a VI in August '44. The reason I said "7 years" is that the caption clearly states 'taken in '33' that being the time prior to her 'personal' involvement, not the start of WW2.

We may have had some 'hard times' in our 1950's, ED apprenticeships but ~ compared to this lad ~ we were molly coddled[/COLOR]
