This is my Mum before she married my Dad on 17th August 1935. She was in service with Doctor Leyton. Dad coloured the photo in with special paints to make it look like a coloured photo, which of course in those days, didn't exist

Josie (Batchelor) Vernon (me) in 1941 in the United Kingdom, taken outside the back kitchen door after the big raids. Note the window has been blasted out and covered with a temporary protection. The meat 'safe' if behind me. No fridges on those days!
