Ron Streatfield—“Granddad”

This week, Tracy Streatfield sent me additional photos of her grandfather, Ron Streatfield. The photo above, she explains, “is likely to have been taken not long before his passing—in either 1985 or 1986, as my sister Heather (left) only looks 2–3 years of age and she was born in 1983.” Tracy is on the right.

Ron died in December 1986.

Above—Ron with his Royal Signals training squad. Printed on the photo is “71 SQUAD NO 2 COY 1st O.T.B. R. SIGNALS 1945 INST L/CL ADAMS.” Ron is seated fourth from the left—see an enlarged detail of Ron below.

This is one of several group photos Tracy sent me.
