My mum's dad came to me in 1989. He died in WW2, at which time, my Nan was carrying my mother. My mother grew up never knowing her dad, but had

Apparently, the photos my mum got of her dad were given to her by her mother, when she came back to the UK with my dad, while I was still living in

happy that they are now.
