My Grandfather...the splitting image of my Dad and myself, I would think, and the same Muscular build, Short but solid...''Take me if you can, dynamite comes in small packages" A man who lived in the time of the depression and had to try and take care of a very large family, He was a Carpenter/Joiner at the time, He was also mostly away serving in the South African war at the time. I was fortunate to have gotten to know him, being the first born I was a lot older than my siblings, so for me this is an honor, also my great Grandfather I knew at the age of 4, although the memories are very vague. We lived in war, in the time of depression, relying on coupons to collect food from the Military trucks that would come round and supply the resedents with the basic rations for survival.
