And now we get to one bit that I was quite looking forward to seeing – photos from my dad’s time in National Service. This is early 1957, so probably early on in basic training.
Not really too much that I can say about these, not knowing anything about it, but I think they are really interesting pictures – it’s very obvious that it’s not modern.
This one is captioned “Murray, extinguished”


This is from a bit later, and is simply titled “Ron reading comic”. I’m sure a military expert out there would be able to identify the beret badge.

There are more photos from National Service, and there is one film labelled “Pubs with the Wrens”, which sounds mildly interesting!

    Yet more treasures Simon – amazing your Dad was allowed to have his camera with him whilst he was training. Different times indeed!
