  • Welcome to my profile page. I was born eleven years after World War 2 ended, in a British military hospital in Germany. I have five children, four of whom are officially adults, though they might fail a broader definition of the term. My parents were Northerners, and we lived in Windermere as I grew up, where many of my family still are. My father and grandfather were both soldiers in The Lancashire Fusiliers, and my grandfather fought with the regiment in The Somme in WW1. I have no idea whether he knew JRRT.

    I now live in the small market town of Royal Wootton Bassett (the "Royal" added in 2011 - an honour from HM The Queen) in Wiltshire - about an hour's drive from Oxford or Bath. If you run searches on my town, you find out that it is known for having marked the passing of repatriated servicemen and women killed in action, all of whom travelled through our High Street on their way from RAF Lyneham to Oxford.
