snapshots and observations

Friday, 28 December 2012


last time i went to visit my mum, she gave me an old newspaper.
an english language newspaper from argentina.

the standard.
doyen of the argentine press
dated monday april 23, 1945.

and there on the back page, a photo of some sailors.
one of those sailors was my grandad

william barker
my grandad was welsh.
he never spoke much about the war.
he lived most of his life in warrington.
i don't think he liked chips as much as i do.
i kind of miss him sometimes.
