Hi Albert.S., hope you don't mind but from the Thomas More photo, that included your wife, I have tried to "enhance" the photo, using the MyHeritage facility. Hope you like it.

What a lovely-looking young lady, and what beautiful eyes.

Thank you Keith. When the school photograph was taken, I was still serving in the R.A.F. Demobbed in April, 1958. Married Veronica, towards the end of 1961.

That's marvellous what can be done, I suppose many people have indistinct images on photos, myself included included.

Glad you approve Albert. The new technology (to me at least) is very good although I have to say at times it does not deal well with hair and ears. No doubt a quirk of the software, but in general it works fine, providing it's a decent photo. I must say Albert, you married a beautiful lady.

Gob-smacking wizardry for this pretty girl. ... wish I could say the same for recorded singers of the past.

You certainly made a truthful comment there Keith. I remember when I was working Wallgate, (Borough Police) in 1962, I called in at Flo Higham’s (florist), and ordered 21 red roses for Veronica’s, 21st birthday. Jokingly, Flo said. “ You cradle snatcher, you”.

Warm greetings from Canada! What a beautiful photo. Veronica, may I politely ask if we're related? My Dad's Mum was Alice Halliwell. Just wondering... Cheers!

I have put your question to Veronica, but she does not know anyone named Alice Halliwell, sorry.

Thank you, cheers!
