When I was a boy, myself and my family used to go on holiday to The Lake District where we would stay in a Bed and Breakfast. Here is me at the back with my brother, Bill, Dad, Mum and my sister Winnie. I don't remember the name of the dog.
My brother and I were very close and always getting up to mischief in one way or another. We liked to go fishing and I also remember going swimming and for picnics in the local woods.
I married Helene Williams in September 1949. It was the happiest day of my life. We'd been engaged for a year and met at The Tower Ballroom. We moved to a little flat in Hembridge which we rented while we saved for our own house. We had very happy times there.
Bill was best man and Helene's sister, Anne, was bridesmaid, along with her friend June. We married at St Matthew's Church in Durton.
My mum and dad were very traditional. Dad worked hard in his shoe repair shop, and mum kept house. They had 3 of us children - myself and my brother Bill and my sister Winnie.
Lots of Love
Sam and Matthew
