Tuesday 11 September 1973

E & I worked in the garden. Arthur brought his son, wife & 3 grandchildren to see my chime bars. I mended a (fan torch) for Ron when he was in the Middle East, Aden.


E refers to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin. Grandma and grandad had large gardens at the front and back of their house, see Chapter 109.

Arthur refers to grandad’s friend Arthur Elsegood. For more detail of grandad’s chime bars, see Chapter 108.

Ron refers to grandma and grandad’s neighbour Ron Douglas. He lived at 168 Drayton High Road. For more details of practical jobs grandad did for Ron, see Chapter 109.
