So part of the reason for this weeks choice of subject (other than the obvious of this weekend) Its a year this week since we lost our Nan a couple months short of her being 98 years old so its a time for remembrance.

And as a 2 for the price of 1 remembrance deal the framed pic of the dogs in the background I also took. Those 2 dogs were so well behaved where did I go wrong with the current 2 I have no idea.

In remembrance of my late father - John Victor Brammer - Merchant Seaman/Engineer

Like my Grandfather before him, and so many of their friends and relations, he fought for this country of ours during WW2 (Grandad in WW1). He never complained, hardly spoke about the things he must have seen, when it was all over just got on with life and raised my Elder Brother, Sister and me.

RIP Dad

A very precious picture that we have, it is less than 1 inch in size and in a very old original frame. David McLeod Oswald, who my OH was named after, taken in 1914 before he left UK with the King's Liverpool Regiment. Did not return home, died in France on 9/8/1916 aged 22 years. We will remember.

A long line of Geoffery's... I'm now the last in long line of Geoffery's in our family that go back for at least 300 years... a family photo from 1943, my Dad Geoffrey Liddell (now 83) on the left, my Grandad Geoffery Wareing in the middle, my Aunite Margaette (now 84) and my Grandmother Irene... My Grandfather served in WWII but never spoke to anyone about what he saw or did, he died when I was about 10 or 12 not long after retiring....
