My maternal Grandparents had seven children, six boys and a girl all born between 1910 and 1923. My Grandfather served in both the first and second World Wars and five of his sons also served their country in World War 2.
The eldest boy, Walter was disabled and died at an early age but the other children : Victor, Charles, George, Fred, Vera Daisy (my lovely Mum) and Ralph had a happy childhood growing up in a small Leicestershire village.
I make no excuses for the quality of the photos in this post and trust you will understand:
This is an early snap of some of them – Uncle George at the top my Mum in the middle, Uncle Charlie on the left, Uncle Vic on the right and Uncle Fred is the baby. As you can see my Mum did not want to be on the photo….
Here is is though looking gorgeous age five..
And again with Uncle Fred wearing some more of the lovely clothes my Grandma made for her only girl,,,,
She always hated her curly hair!!!!
Sadly all the family have passed away and I am left with many photos and lovely memories of them all.
The last one – my Uncle George passed away last week and the funeral will be held on Monday. He was 95 years old and a lovely man.
This post is just a requiem for the whole family and a special hug for Uncle George.
He was the last of his line and a superstar!!!
