  1. How Wonderful Ronnie, It makes my Heart Swell just reading about your Warrior Efforts. I left my childhood Home, Number 10 Ducie Street, back in 1968, to Emigrate with my Widowed Mum and baby Sister, to Australia for a New Life. I have Such Dear Memories growing up there from 1959 to 1968. Thank you for All you have done to Restore those Once Cherished Buildings. If you happen to read this, could you tell me the Species of the Lovely, Knobbly Trees planted along our Streets? No-one I have asked seems to know. Cheers Cassie in OZ
