Some quick iPhone snaps of old pics showing transport from the wider Duisberg family over the years. Granny and Grandad taking me and some cousins to the Peak District in their VW camper, them in the same camper on Dartmoor, Scotland and elsewhere. One of those vans survived until a meaty MOT fail in 2018, apparently!

And some more. Me and my little sis at home, a great pic of my parents on their wedding day (Escort van!), a black and white pic of my mum and her siblings somewhere, and other random snaps of happiness. Chap with the ‘tache is my Uncle. I look rather like him now.

More pics. Isn’t this what FaceBook is for? We don’t do FB. Grandad was a coal miner from 15, then a bus driver in Leicester. No idea what the Hovercraft was photographed for but I guess there’s no reason needed.

I ought to get better organised. Cheers.
