I am sorry to report that Walter has passed away. He was a true gentleman.

The bunting was up as George and Edith celebrated their 68th Wedding Anniversary at Albany House and William and Kate got married at Westminster Abbey. It was in the depths of war when Leading Stoker George was given leave from the Navy to marry Edith. George said, 'They only gave me 3 days leave and it took me a day and a half to travel from Aberdeen to Sheffield to get married'. 68 years later they celebrated their aniversary, surrounded by family and friends, after watching the Royal Wedding on television. Mr John came to entertain, Pearl baked a cake and we raised a few glasses to both couples. We got the Easter bonnets out too which made the photo more fun.
