In the mid-80s, Adrian discovered his late father had a secret first marriage and 3 children!
After 51 years of happy marriage to Edna, Gilbert took the secret to his grave.
A special party was arranged at Batley RAFA Club where the 2 families met. Edna now had 9 children & step-children, 32 grandchildren & step-grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren and great step-children!
In 2018, I was asked to research the history of Edna and Gilbert and this newspaper clipping featured in the book along with all the information that pieced everyone together.
