Auntie Gertie and Mother (Topsie)

Here is Lorna’s mother Topsie (right) in later life, with her sister (and Lorna’s aunt) Gertie. Gertie was the eldest of seven children born to Lorna’s maternal grandparents. They were:

1. Gertrude born 1870
2. Ada born 1871
3. Robert born 1872
4. Alice (Topsie) born 1876 - Lorna's mother
5. Beatrice born 1878
6. Cecil born 1880
7. Beaumont born 1886

Gertie, her husband Alfred, and their grand-daughter Beryl (aged 12 in 1940) will feature later in Lorna’s war diary.
