June in pictures
|I've been rat-sitting!|
On the subject of family, a long-lost relative also found me this month, the daughter of my granddad's brother Bobby. I shared a few photos with her, including this one, one of my favourites. It was taken in Maymyo in Burma (now Pyin Oo Lwin in Myanmar) in the mid-30s, and I'm pretty sure it's my granddad and his brothers – Granddad Fred on the left, Bobby on the right, Patrick at the back and Bunny at the front. I was intrigued to learn that during the war Bobby had been in the Royal Army Medical Corps on the pathology side of things like granddad, and that he'd boxed welterweight. Granddad was heavyweight and Bunny lightweight. I need to find out more about Patrick now...
As for Papa Robot, here's a shot of him on a rollercoaster in the 1960s that I tweeted on Father's Day. Hehehe. It's one of my favourites of him.
Did you have a fun June?
