My great-grandmother. Her facial features and eyes were the same as my father's.
My grandmother Annie Horn. She used to tickle my back with her knitting needles!
My father Alfred William (Bill) Lapthorn in the late 1920s. About 15 years later he was a flight engineer in a Lancaster bomber flying raids over Germany in the dead of night. He rarely talked about this and I think he was deeply troubled by war and its consequences.
My grandfather in Island Street, Salcombe around 1940. He died in 1942 so I never knew him.
Me in 1949 aged about 9 months. Handsome fellow eh?
