I NEVER KNEW HIM AS GRANDAD ©

I never knew him as grandad
I loved him, who stood in his place,
I grew up without understanding
Not thinking to picture his face.

Owen's of All Saints
Kicked a casey
(Name for an old fashioned ball)
In the playground
Against the school wall

My branch of Owen's from All Saints are known for having a sporting interest, representing the school of that name and been in forces and the Special Police during both the first and second world wars. One was a senior member of Popski's Private Army, a Special Force in the Middle East. An aunt was a Spotter attached to the guns whilst in the ATS.

My mother was born an Owen and was also in the ATS and suffered injuries in an accident whilst serving in Egypt and was transferred to Aldershot hospital where she met my dad.

Connected to story on Page Fifers Day.
