She recently handed over a huge number of postcards. In sorting through them I came across a folder from F M Sutcliffe, of Whitby, where I remember the two pictures immediately below this text being taken. I would guess that they date from summer 1963, after we had moved to Guisborough from Ryton (Shropshire), where the top picture must have been taken around 1960.
The next picture is annotated on the reverse, 'Gilman and Soame Photographers, Oxford', so it may have been taken at the time of my uncle Peter's wedding in Oxford to Jackie. That would be '63 or '64, I guess.
This final picture is dated 1965, and includes my dad looking very 'headmasterly', and 'Granny Banfield' in the centre. In earlier times when we were at junior school in Albrighton, she carried out the enduring grandparenting task of looking after us in her bungalow after school, before Dot had finished work and came to collect us. She had a lovely dog called Paddy, and strictly observed 'no games' when we visited on Sundays.
