  1. It’s the ongling news of wars in the middle east that helps make the connection. Finding this and – later this afternoon – some other unexpected notes has tickled Denise’s curiosity. This evening she’s been investigating a note on a scrap of old paper with a small enamelled brooch to the effect that it came into the family through someone who was a servant in the royal court (or possibly the househod of a royal mistress?) in the early 19thC. She’s found the person’s birth information – 1805 in South Wingfield, Derbyshire, but nothing yet that might confirm the supposed origins of the brooch.

  2. Oh dear – that is so very poignant. 10 hours, my goodness that must have been terrifying. What a precious note you have discovered.

Your views are welcome!
