How ancient you must be. Even when I was a child, celebrating the day, and especially waving the flag, was primarily associated with the National Front. It's only on this board that I've heard mention of either in a context not specifically intended as racist. I suppose the equivalent here would be waving a Confederate flag.

No she never. Although her friend Mavis wasn't adverse at doing unspeakable things around the back of the Labour Club in Doncaster for an extra ration coupon.

Well Mavis was no better than she aught. It's well known.

Your nan probably wanted to keep the shame of the gamekeeper. Incident from you and kept the secret from you but others know.
