How They Met
Dad was in the army and stationed at Netheravon (this would be 1935/36 I think) He had a mate who was walking out with one of the aunts (dont know which one) This mate had arranged to meet the aunt off the bus at the stop at Figheldean and Dad went with him. Mum was with her sister and they all met on the slope going down towards the river bridge. Dad decided there and then that Mum was the girl for him.
