I found this pho­to­graph af­ter my mother passed away. My ini­tial thought was that it was dur­ing the war, but on the re­verse, mum had writ­ten, ‘mummy, Wind­sor, 1936’.

My ma­ter­nal grand­fa­ther was in the Blues dur­ing World War 1, and my mother spent her child­hood at Wind­sor. The 1939 Reg­is­ter has the fam­ily liv­ing in Not­ting­hamshire, and grand­fa­ther was em­ployed as a con­sta­ble for the War Depart­ment at Chilwell.

My ques­tion is, what was grandma do­ing in 1936? She seems to be wear­ing mil­i­tary cloth­ing, and I am in­trigued. Can some­one throw some light on this? PAT PRITCHARD, VIA EMAIL
