I didn’t take this obviously but i found it a few days ago when i finally started sorting out the bins of pictures i am trying to put in albums. The third guy , the shortest one is my lovely father. Taken during WW2 when he was in Belgium. I have no idea what he saw, what he had to do to survive and how much he tried to put out of his head when he returned home to my mum. He wouldn't talk about the time he served. He was a lovely dad and husband and his family was everything to him. This is the only picture we had of him in uniform and I'm so glad I found it again. I did shed a tear looking at it but I felt proud as well. My lovely dad. I wish he had been in my life longer than 22 years. I miss him .

They never did talk about it much, did they. Here's mine, skinny guy in glasses standing up in the first armoured car, entering Tunis in 1943, 11th Hussars, 8th army. He married my mother relatively late - I think it took him a while to get over things.

Love these WW2 photos!

When I was a small boy, first at boarding school, our carpentry master, who had served as a pom-pom gunner on HMS Suffolk during the war, showed us some photos he took of the Bismarck in the Denmark Straits, brought a thrill (& a chill) to us all.

It is actually a coffee cup lid. A couple of pigs left 2 coffee cups on the floor, the lids were on the chair.

This might seem a daft question but why are the chairs chained up?

I assume to stop someone taking them but why would they be left there if not to sit on?
All those blue chairs on the Prom at Nice...they don't chain those up.




At least not when I was last there.

Probably to prevent them from being moved.
