Hi Terry. Did your father work in the office of Bannisters Builders? I seem to remember him when I worked for Bannisters.

Yes John, Dad worked in the office with Bob Bannister, and his secretary was Julie Vacher whose dad was Frank Vacher, the wood machinest in the joinery shop. I seem to remember you when we built two bungalows at Hawth Hill in Seaford, I was working under Keith Godfrey then. You came and did some work there.

Thinking about my grandad at this time. My dad said that he was a corporal in the East Lancashire Regiment, I have his medals which are stamped with his name rank number and the letters DVR which I am told meant he was a driver. He was gassed twice and although he died when I was 3 years old I can remember him having to take a white powder with every meal. He and my gran are buried in Newhaven cemetery.

I was looking through grandad's army records and found out that the letter T prefix to his number meant that he was involved with horses. Being a driver I presume he was involved in horse transport. I always wondered where my daughter's love of horses came from.
