Lest we forget

This is my favourite image of my maternal grandparents Ray and Dorothy (Mardie and Pa). Candid images are often the best aren't they. This was taken just after Ray returned from the PNG front in WWII and you can see him in uniform. Like a lot of diggers he didn't like to talk about his time at war. He died before I had a chance to know him but as a fomer history major at uni I sincerely hope we have the good sense to learn from history and not to repeat it.

Please do not duplicate or use this image for any other purpose.


  1. Style must run in the family. Look at Mardie strut her stuff. x

  2. Such a lovely photo. One to cherish!

  3. How did she get the name 'Mardie"?
