My Father in the uniform of a Captain in the Suffolk Regiment (approx 1941)
A portrait painted by Oswald Birley of my mother, aged 19. Oswald Birley was a patient of my grandfather, Dr Edmund Howard Barrett. Finding it difficult to pay the doctor's fees, he offered to paint my Grandfather's portrait. My Grandfather replied "I'm too old and ugly; paint my daughter instead!" My mother appears in the uniform of the "Female Army Nursing Yeomanry" (FANY) a World War One unit. In true British style, she is "Doing her bit."

Tom Hunn An extremely forceful man who believed in the Victorian values of discipline and education. He started teaching us Latin at age 7 and made us learn great chunks of Shakespeare by heart. My thanks to him for my memory and my love of the English language (As opposed to the American language) .
