Memoirs of a Fisherman's Son - Part 1, Chapter 2

Chapter II

Move to 113

My Dad and grandfather were demobbed from the Navy in 1919 and very reluctantly my parents moved to the thatched cottage No.113 High Street belonging to grandfather. This was a mistake, never I hope, to be repeated in my family. It is truly said that 'oil and water don't mix'. Neither do the old and the young, especially when the latter have children of their own. For the succeeding twenty years my mother had to suffer the presence of her father-in-law, a man of very different views and temperament.
