Born 26th February 1912
The Titanic isn't the only centenary this year.  My grandad would have been 100 years old today if he was still alive.  I love the photo and frame above.  Taken as he was off to fight in the Second World War.
I loved my grandad.  I once believed that  he was the Bungalow Bill from the Beatles song and he went along with that.  He was a lovely man who took life as he found it and expected life to take him as it found him.  Not always politically correct but one of the most tolerant people I ever knew.  Used to have my tea with him 2 or 3 times a week when I was at school and still remember the hot pots and potato pies he made me... yummy... and the fried fish (on a Friday) and the salads!  He wasn't a big fan of salad... it was half an iceberg lettuce, some cucumber, a sliced boiled egg and some ham!! He wasn't a big fan of all "that foreign muck" either.  Good plain fare.
