Surely this photo must have been taken many years before Janice fell under the mesmeric spell of "wur Cyril". Her maiden name escapes me at the moment - I'm sure Marion will remember.

[I believe it was Allan- Steven]

Janice Allan before marrying. She always had her head buried in a book and I think she may have been born reading!!

"Born Reading" - well, good on her, and may she continue until she "Dies Reading" just as I intend to.

[And hopefully not for a while yet too! - Steven]

Aye, her maiden name was either "Allan" war "Allen".

My maiden name was Allan.

Of course it was Allan, I remember getting in a horrible fecht with her brother in 1981: I've still got the scars.
