Two weeks ago I posted a photo of my great-uncle Stan in his Home Guards uniform and promised more to come....
..... so here is a little bit more.
I don't know much about Uncle Stan's family. He married my father's Aunt, and we saw a lot of them but I have no memories of seeing or meeting any of his own family. However we have quite a few photos of them.
This is his mother as a child, with her parents and nurse. I guess they were fairly well off.
Mabel Nellie Boswell, I don't know her date of birth.
Here Mabel is, all grown up and with her husband,
Arthur Cornelius Woodruff, born 21st November 1878.
And this is Uncle Stan - back right - his mother front left, and to the front right is his brother Ray who died in WW2.
Stan was born in August, 1906.
I thought this was the earliest photo I have of Stan, in his choir boy robes...
...but, though this photo is labelled (by my father) "unknown", I think that Stan is here, middle row 2nd from the left. What do you think? or maybe it is Ray.
