My favourite photo of my parents,in their "courting" days,shall we say.I have no photos of my father prior to this.Mid 60's.

Daddy & baby me!1967.


So dapper! I think he was a salesman of some kind about this time.He was a jack of all trades.

He fought in WW II in Tarakan,off the coast(I think) of Borneo.He was 19 and it affected him greatly.He would never speak about it,what little I know I got from Mummy.

Mummy & my Aunt Jan,aged 6.(Janice) Jan is 18 years younger than Mummy,so this is in the early 50's.
Mummy aged about 16/17,I think.


This is from her debut,she must be around 18.Not too sure.

I love old photos. Your Mum looks like she was very stylish and the photo of your parents in their "courting" days is lovely.

I can see where you get your style from. What a cool and utterly gorgeous couple.
Thanks for sharing!
Jon's dad also fought in Borneo amongst other places and never spoke a word of it. Mist have been truly hideous.
