She never married as the man she was to wed was an officer in the first world war and was killed there as so many were.I used to listen to her reminisces as it was so much like a history book, she told me she saw Queen Victoria by the Mint in her carriage, and the horses were watered by where she was standing (about 1890 odd)?? Best Regards Malcolm Booth I think one of the earliest memories I can recall goes back to the time when having reached my fifth birthday I was taken by my mother to attend 'Nelson Street Infant School, Ladywood, Birmingham 'for the very first time.I remember it vividly and all kinds of little things come rushing back to me as I sit and think of those long bygone days in 1933.I can see her now, she always seemed to wear brown on most occasions, her hair was always combed neatly into one long curl which went all the way round from one side of her head to the other and when she walked along it used to bob up and down, at the time it used to fascinate me.She was very nice and helpful if you did not understand any of the lessons she would sit very patiently with you and explain everything.
