I found some telegrams among mum's papers after her death. The four below were sent to her and William from friends and parents to congratulate them on their marriage in 1945. William and Kathleen were in the army during the second world war and towards the end of the war they were both stationed in Liverpool which was where they met. They both lived on Rodney Street, Kathleen at number 60 and William at number 75.
This is the telegram received by William when I was born. At that time he had not been demobbed from the army and was stationed in Surrey. Kathleen was living with his parents in Cheshire and I was born in their house on 23rd January 1946. William's sister Nora sent the telegram, not sure if it confused him or not but to me it reads as though he had two daughters. The omission of that clever little apostrophe!
