Today on Fathers Day I am remembering my father William George TIMMINS who was born 20th May 1916 in Chester. He died in 1986 and memories of him are slowly fading. There is a photograph however that rekindles memories; it is one that mum always had around the house until she passed away in 2008. This was of my dad aged about 27, he was in the Royal Navy; it was taken during the second world war when he was stationed in Gibraltar (c1943).
|WGT – Gibraltar (c1943)|
also a dictionary he used during the war,
MS Sobieski (Polish)
HMS Cormerant – Gibraltar
HMS Ariguani – Gibraltar
It is sad how the memories begin to fade, even when we were adults when we lost our fathers. This is a wonderful photo of your father. He was very handsome.
