One thought on “Ian’s Busy Day

  1. Good afternoon
    My name is Kate Walmsley and I am currently working on my family history. My mother was older sister to Rodney O’Rorke. She was born and bred in Titchmarsh. I recall visiting Titchmarsh regularly in the 1950’s to stay with my grandmother. The reason I am writing is because Wallace Dudley would be my great great uncle. His older sister, Martha married Tom Rowlett and my grandmother was their eldest child born in 1900, Jessie Emma.
    I would love to read his memoirs, are you planning on putting them on line or can I buy a copy?
    Kind regards
    Kate
