A trip to see uncle allatsea at 143 Millmead Road just before Christmas produced this, the above pic of allatsdea’s dad aged six.
Here is he is then in 1936 in Erith Kent (now London apparently?), looking cherubic and holding a kitten. It’s difficult to reconcile my memories of the man, both good and bad, with this image. A conundrum of emotions is washing over me as I write, stifling breath and clear thought. It’s difficult to address and I wish now that I hadn’t started.
Roy William Howell, 31/10/1930 (Erith) to 31/01/1986 (Rahimah KSA)
