She had died about 10 years previously but because she had ridden a m/c he was keen to show me photos etc. Then out came the war souvenirs, including a Japanese officers dress sword and a bloodstained hat, followed by a British Army machine gun in pristine condition, which he then proceeded to load and fire into the night sky. I have to admit being a little unsettled by this, but stayed put as I had nowhere else to go, but I was up bright and very early the next morning. Just goes to show that you can find ‘interesting ‘ people anywhere…….
Sounds like a good sort to me .
