I HAVE to rewrite the obit below from the Skegness Herald.
My Dad died on the 26th of June. My eldest’s birthday. Younger brother phoned me a half hour later as I was shopping in Tesco for birthday party food.
My Mum was called Fernley.
Dad was cremated on the 5th of July – his birthday. I signed the lawyers papers to sack the BASTARDS on the 3rd of July.
P.S. He was Special Branch in Skegness. And WELL known and loved and/or Hated because of that.
Special Branch is the British police force which works mostly for the security services, especially MI5. It has had various changes of name, while its function has stayed much the same. It was formed in London in 1883.
