I would follow my Grandad Booth. He passed away when I was a young teenager and I wish I’d had chance to get to know him better. He was a quiet, kind man, very gentle and warm. He was a carpenter, I remember his shed so vividly, so I’d ask him to teach me how to make things, about his life growing up and serving in WW2 in the Shetland Islands and the Isle of White where he met my Nan, but no-one in the family knows very much about it. I’d ask him so many questions.
