Me, in my sun hat and little knitted swimsuit, in 1938. I would be about three and a half there.
Tobogganing in the winter of 1939/40. Very cold winter, I am told!
Me and my sister on the beach at Cromer in September 1939. War was declared while we were there, by a policeman cycling along, ringing a bell! We were late taking out holiday that year, as I had had measles and put paid to plans for a June holiday! Funny time to go on holiday, though!
My sister, myself and a friend at London Zoo, 1942 I am not too sure what my parents were thinking of, taking us to London in wartime, but there we were, scoffing ice creams, which we bought in those solid rectangular blocks. Sometimes with a wafer either side. Do you remember them?
By the time I was 13, in 1947, I was very self-conscious about having my photo taken, and was not much good as a model any longer! We are back at Cromer - but we never went anywhaere else!
Racing forward to 1970, my daughter, nephew and niece at their Granny's house. Sadly, Nick died four years ago.
