‘Jack’ was born in 1914 and came from Rye in Sussex. He didn’t speak much about his experiences. Just a few months after repatriation, he married my mother in August 1945, in Rye. They moved to London to work, where he worked for Bowater-Scott, paper manufacturers, as a lorry driver and then as a chauffeur until his death in 1971.
