|Dad, Valerie, David, me in Mums arms with Field-Marshall Montgomery at
our home in Enham Alamein near Andover, England during 1949.
|My Dad never spoke much about the work he did on special operations in the
Navy during WWII. He did though several times tell me of strange deja vu
experiences he had when his ship docked in Malta. He knew the streets, the
shops and local layout as if he had visited before but he had not - ever. After the
war was over and all the debriefings Field-Marshall Montgomery (Monty) had with
Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Eisenhower, 'Monty' visited our
home and had tea with our family. The photograph above shows Monty, Winston
Churchill, General Simpson and Field-Marshall Sir Alan Brooke crossing the west
wall in Germany.
|This section of my website is dedicated to the memory of my Mum and Dad who
both passed in recent years at the ages of 90 and 84 years respectively.
I am the third of four children. The first David who as a young boy took on many
of Dad's roles as the man of the house during the second world war because Dad
was an officer in the Royal Navy and was away on special operations in various
troubled parts of the world. My sister Valerie was born in 1944, myself in 1946
and my second brother Peter two years later. Ive often jokingly called myself the
end of war celebration.

|No one knows exactly how many people died during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic. During the 1920s, researchers estimated that 21.5 million people died as a result of the
1918-1919 pandemic. More recent estimates have estimated global mortality from the 1918-1919 pandemic at anywhere between 30 and 50 million.

|August 2018: Grandchildren, Ethan and Lindsey wanted to place
flowers on Granny and Granddads grave and so saved their
pocket money and placed the flowers. I love this photo taken by
their Mum Jean.
