Easter 1944

What makes this shot so special for me is that it includes both of my grandfathers. The man in the white shirt, front row, is Cecil Munroe, who died before I was born. From everything I’ve uncovered since, he was a remarkably warm and affectionate man — and a natural storyteller with a fine singing voice.

Standing behind him are his second wife, my Gran, and her bachelor brother, Ernest.

Dad, in uniform, was on furlough.
