War Gallery 5

World War 2 influenced the lives of us Baby Boomers in lots of ways and the blanket on this bed reminded me of one of them.  As kids we had old Army blankets like this on our beds at home.  They were heavy and not at all warm.  I was glad that I slept with my sister so we could cuddle together for warmth but we still fought over whose feet got to be on the hot water bottle.

That ends this series.  Haven't got anything new to post here so will be gone again for a while.


  1. Me too, I can even smell its old musty smell. A beautifully taken series of War Memorial shots.

  2. Funny what brings back memories. We had old hospital blankets.

  3. "Sweet Wayfaring" has been included in our A Sunday Drive for this week. Be assured that we hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
