      Ah-ha – that email sent without me realising – must have hit the button, or something. I was just looking at the report and noticed that Cannon Street is mentioned, but needs a little correction……

      ARTHUR WILLIAM JAMES THOMPSON (Mary's grandfather)

      On 29 September 1939, aged 32, he resided in Southampton, Hampshire, England (122 Common Street) CANNON STREET

      His mother/parents lived at 93 Cannon Street. Pearl and Betty were born there, brought into the world by Grandad's Mum/their Grandmother Maud Thompson (nee Sparshott)



      This reminds me to look up the surname Gamblin….I worked with someone of the same name who was not aware of family links but came from the Botley area of Southampton. Neither myself, or others following same tree line, have listed her parents. Another route to follow. Auntie Pearl did say she slept in the 4 poster bed of one of her Grandmothers (Sparshott side) who was of Irish decent………..intriguing! Gets additive this, doesn't it…..and does your head in too!! lol







      Just banter……

      Mum said her Dad, Arthur W J Thompson, knew Reg Varney of "On the Buses" fame, whilst they were serving in the Army….GrandadT being a dispatch rider. Grandad played the Banjo and Mandolin, and from Youtube, it seems Reg Varney probably played Piano? Grandad may have also played a tune or two with George Formby. Been lovely if there were photos!



      Mum's Uncle, Nan's brother William H G Bagg served in the Navy and was stationed on King George V. He has some war photos including memorable visits on board the ship of King George V himself, Winston Churchill, and one of George Formby (not clear, but it's him)…love the old family photos.
