About this memory

Monique Guyonneau.

"Visit to Edinburgh by my pen-pal Monique. On introduction in 'La France' magazine through the school (James Clark's) aged 11, I gave my father's occupation as brassmoulder. Monique gave hers as cutlery manufacturer -but her dad owned the cutlery business! I visited them at Chatellerault, Vienne, twice." - Jean Bell (née Bottomley)
