Auntie Ena was born May 26, 1906.
One of 6 Allan children, 5 of whom served during WWII, I felt it relevant to start with my favourite Great Aunt as my chosen subject for Ro’s “vintage book” workshop on Saturday, ANZAC Day, 25 April 2009.
There was no way I was ever going to finish the book in the workshop – not with all the chatter, eating and fire sitting that is involved in a workshop at Ro’s…. I gave the cover, binding and first page a bit of a bash though, and have come home and finished another little bit. This class is the long awaited beginning to finally getting my family history hoardings into some sort of semblance…. a little tweaking here and there and I should pull it all together somehow…… eventually!
