Early reports coming in of a solemn fly-past of bluebirds spotted over the cliffs of Dover. Ainsi soit-il.
She will always remind me of the past with her voice. How our mentality was different then. We were so proud and united to be British. Many of these old timers survived the war but did not survive covid-19. Sad day she has gone.
