About this memory

Ernest Mobbs (centre) with his son Arthur (left) and nephew (right).

"Dad in his Royal Navy uniform - as can be seen, no brass buttons, etc, nothing that could glisten during wartime. At last proof Dad used to smoke cigarettes, probably navy issue, he was mostly a pipe smoker, which used to fill the room in no time with smell (which I miss)." - Evelyn Muir (née Mobbs)
