70 years ago

Today the news has focussed on Normandy as it did 70 years ago today.
Unlike today's generation, mine grew up with relatives who could tell of what happened during the war.

Our house had blackout boards left from war time. Simple pieces of plywood cut to shape, fitted against the windows to stop light escaping in to the street.

We used them in the kitchen long after the war ended. They created a dark room for amateur photography.

There weren't many family involved in WWII; 
those lives had already been lost in WWI.
