[underlined]The Story of the Brooch[/underlined]

My mother always wore a ‘wings’ brooch during the war (photo enclosed)

When my father (a wonderful character) became mayor of Boston 1973 he took the salute when R.A.F. Coningsby was granted the Freedom of the Borough.

At the dinner afterwards the commanding officer presented my mother with the brooch which Mick had taken a photo of. She was delighted and thrilled and now it is mine and I wear it with pride. It always gets a comment from someone.
