Yes, a wonderful photo Harry, colourful and very peaceful.

Ken was your sister married to an American airman, they met each other at Burtonwood. I'm not too sure of their names now, but I seem to recall Winifred and Timothy?

Hello Ken, I only knew Winifred & Nicholas through my frequent visits along Sennicar Lane when I worked at the council. I had many a cup of tea and a chat with them, and they could tell some fascinating tales. They were a marvellous couple.
