William (Bill) Robinson

William (Bill) Robinson, twin of Alice, was closest to my Mum, and she looked after him after he had a stroke. A confirmed bachelor, he had a few stints in the Army, even being called up when a reservist to be parachuted into Aden. A quality footballer, he was offered professional terms by Blackburn, but wanted to stay in the Army.

And here is my Uncle Bill, in his army days, with bunnet at a ludicrously jaunty angle. As it should be.
