I've spent quite a lot of time on my family history, the hours just vanish when you get engrossed in it, I found details of my grand dads brother James O'Grady who I suppose my natural father was named after. He was in the Irish Fusiliers from 1913-1920, wounded in the left arm in France in 1918.. Two of his brothers including my grandad Patrick were with a sister Nillie? at Dunmanway which doesn't appear on the census for 1901 or 1911 which survive no trace of the O'Gradys although at some stage my grandfather is supposed to have changed from O'Sullivan to O'Grady, all very confusing. anyway it would be interesting if I could track his service record from his regimental number which I have also his France star medal award.
I'm on the cusp of starting couple more of the Bus Spot Ultra series, I'm now thinking of Cardiff as one and Dundee the other as I can go back to the tram era for both with some nice scenes in the early years. We've a nice piece of roast lamb in Guinness roasting away and a bottle of Fleurie to wash it down, all good stuff, hard work being a pensioner you know. Tomorrow is Bank Holiday in England, hope to get some more outside jobs done including painting the greenhouse yet again. I tied ringing my sister Janet for her birthday but no reply, I'll have to see if I can spot anything on Facebook I can join with, I've never figured how you start a conversation, but then I don't particularly want to! Lets dip into the archives for something I like, ah can never beat those old bangers in Burma before the Chinese and Jap stuff poured in.Great fun one of my all time favourites, never go back eventually become a maxim in all cases.
