& June's Golden Anniversary
& June: A Close Encounter
is George's version of how he and June met as reported
by his son, David.]
knew mum from a very young age, 14, at school. They both
attended the same secondary school in London. Anyway dad
left school at age 15 and went and joined the services.
The UK still had Compulsory National Service in the 40's
n 50's. So off dad rushed to join up with the Royal Marines.
He served his time all over the world from Singapore to
Korea and back. You must have heard the old story, a sailor
has a gal in every port; well, this is true of dad as
his return home, Grandpa Pop and Nan got that letter you
may have heard about before, the one that warns you to
lock up your daughters because the ole man is coming home
friends from the marines always enjoyed a good booze up,
and this was true after he returned from his service.
They ended up one night going to a pub called 'The Archway
Tavern.' On this particular night, they had a dance going
on at the back of the Hall. So dad and his friends decided
to gatecrash this party.
getting in, a certain gal caught the eye of dad and all
his friends. He told his buddies that he knew that certain
gal in question. He even boasted to all his friends that
he knew this gal from school.
this is how dad and mum finally met. They wined and dined
a few times and were married after about a year, November
6th, 1954. The rest of the story is what you see now,
some fifty years later.
