I was thrilled to see my Father – Frederick Bennetts in the photo. My Father started school in Ironwood, Michigan where my Grandparents, Christopher Giles Bennetts and his wife Elizabeth (nee Batten) went over to make a new life for themselves with Dad’s sisters, Muriel and Edith.
You can certainly pick Dank (Alfred Flamank) out in a crowd even today! He’s 93 in January and still going strong. Of course, he later served in the Merchant Navy during World War Two and still enjoys a tot or two of rum on a Friday night at Rose Institute to this day!
