29 November 2022My Mum, Brenda Walker, died in 2020 from COVID-19 and frailty. We knew that she had written about her childhood growing up before and during the Second World War and always wrote poetry during her life - but it was still a bit of a surprise when my sister, Lynette Coates, found Mum's memoir and poetry in a box in her bedroom.
11 November 2020My parents emigrated to Australia (under the Ten Pound Poms scheme) when I was nine years old. We travelled to Perth, Western Australia, by ship. It took about a month to get there!
12 July 2020Brenda Walker died on 5th April 2020. She was my Mum.
