    My grandad on my fathers side served as an MP near the end of ww2.

    My great grandad on my fathers side served in the army during ww2.

    My great uncle on my fathers side served in the RAF throughout the course of ww2.

    On my mothers side, her dad was sent to wales as a child (10 yrs old) at the outbreak of ww2, he spent 3 years in the mines as a bevin boy. In 1949 he enlisted to the royal armoured corps in London, later changing over to the Royal artillery corps of which he served with until 1960. After leaving the army he spent allot of time working as a truckie, spent some time as a speedway bike mechanic and travelled the world with his wife and daughter.
    Another interesting fact about my grandad is that to marry his wife who is Swedish he had to get permission from then king Gustaf of Sweden.

    My great grandad on my mothers side was the police commissioner at New Scotland Yard, not sure when though.

    My nan, grandad and my mum immigrated to Australia from England in 1962 on board the TSS Fairstar.

    ughhhhh my family has Anglo Saxon heritage... that's about it really.

    Cheers-
