    Staying on the Border Regt theme. Here is a sweetheart embroidery which was done in WW2. The wooden backing to the frame is made from a ration box.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Jelle, yes that was him. His son, who I was at school with, was named after his Dad. He was from Ruddington, Nottingham.

    Nice title!

    Cheers, Ade.
