Hiya Ron ,
If you want a REALLY obscure coincidence , my Mam's sister Amy moved down from the North just before, or, during WWII as labour was urgently needed down there in Aylesbury, doing whatever, probably for the War effort - maybe agriculture. I only met her twice - sometime in the late 50's - they had a big Vauxhall with bench front sheet . Jeez we thought they were really rich. Their married surname was Osbourne.
And as an aside (and because most Brit Mudcatters like reference to Whitby) her husband Tony whilst staying at whitby for a few days described it (approx.) thus " A smashing place - lavverley(sic)- but those facking shite hawks drive me crazy from morning to facking night ".
It was the first time I had heard a grown-up swear whilst directly talking to me and I was astonished / flummoxed and (in private) deeply amused.
Any have fun with the song
