A Brit a Day [#1229]

Today’s Brit is my mother’s stepfather, my Daddy Rex [far right], a native of Dunstable, England.  He came to the US as a college student before the First World War and fought in that war for the US Army.  In 1960, he married my grandmother, a month or two after I was born, and then became a delightful fixture in my life.
Rex is in many of the family pictures I have recently had converted to digital files.  I’m opening a shop on Etsy to display my favorites and sell digital copies.  My Etsy shop is going to be called Our Kodachrome Years–in the next few days I’ll be posting a link here so you can check it out!
