lMy late father was born on this day in 1907,place of birth Dale Road, Kentish Town.

He remembered sitting on his father's shoulders to watch the funeral procession of

Edward 7.

In WW2 he served in the Suffolk regiment & was evacuated from Dunkirk, serving time

as chairman of the local Dunkirk Veterans after moving to Cheshire.

A quiet man who wore his learning lightly, he sparked my interest in literature &

Shakespeare in particular, for which I'm eternally grateful.

I know he would have been thrilled by the results of my ten year quest to trace our

family history & only wish I had been able to share it with him. I am proud to be his

daughter & will continue to do all that I can to honour his memory.
