Memories of the Family

Yesterday, 8 May 2020 was the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, yet it’s only today that I consider what my family did during the War. My Dad was a Civil Servant and then volunteered to join the RAF and served as part of Bomber Command; he was in India on VE Day (I think?). My Mum was a Civil Servant, sufficiently senior to be in a reserved occupation, her thanks was to be fired when she married my Dad. Her sister was a driver in the ATS, and if the personal is political, a radical feminist, although the words now mean something else. My Mum had two brothers, one, a fighter pilot who died in the Battle of Britain, the other, a merchant seaman, who survived.

This isn’t really a wiki article, I’ll probably repeat it on the blog; I wanted to make it loop but couldn’t find the runes. Eventually, I just repeated the slides, just the once, so they display in a single loop. I have documented my findings on youtube embedding elsewhere on this wiki.
It was meant to be simpler than making a slide show carousel.
