This is Lesley Smith, the curator of Tutbury Castle, who makes appearances as historical characters at the castle.
I posted a photo of her as Boudicca earlier in the year.

I'm guessing this isn't Joan of Arc.

Hi Craig.  I've never seen the show but I do know Lesley runs "ghost nights" at the castle so I expect you're right.

was so lice ridden that his wife, Margaret, refused to allow him in the house until he'd taken a bath out in the back yard

Still a damned good story whether true or not.... My grandfather told me earwigs would crawl into your ear and burrow into your brain, both my grandfather and father were great practical jokers..... which has given me an idea.....

With the D-Day anniversary approaching here is a photograph of Pegasus Bridge,

It was a major objective of British airborne troops during the opening minutes of the invasion of Normandy on the 6th June 1944.A unit of glider infantry troops of 2 Battalion The Oxfordshire & Buckingham Light Infantry, 6th Airborne Division commanded by Major John Howard took the bridge by total surprise and  intact. The successful taking of the bridges played a most important role in limiting the effectiveness of a German counter-attack in the days and weeks following the Normandy invasion. In 1944 it was renamed Pegasus Bridge in honour of the operation. The name is derived from the shoulder emblem worn by the British airborne troops which is the flying horse Pegasus.

As these bridges came under control of the allies, My dear old Dad was going ashore with his Tank regiment, the 34th Tank Brigade, a few miles to the west.

Well, looks like we have another tie break, as Korky is away from today he's asked that Denis does the honours and chooses the next challenge.

Well done both of you ... Korks and Denis... . . Both very emotive images relating to your own family history ...   so .. as Korks  asked us to get Denis to do the honours choosing this week’s theme if the result was a tie (as he only has intermittent access to  the internet this week, ) so it’s over to you Denis.
