Memories of my father
Studied at U.C. Swansea.
Went into REME at end of war, but on the way to China (?) the war ended, and he was sent to India. Called in at Capetown on the way there. Made a ramble in the Himalayas in Sikkim about 1947, and wrote a diary of this (which Glenys has).
My dear father died after suffering Alzheimer's disease for about three years. During this time his mental faculties declined progressively, so it was very painful for those who loved him to see this. However, almost up to the end he retained his jollity, and he seemed more or less like a happy small boy. Perhaps his suffering was less than our pain, but it must have been very hard for Glenys, who looked after him most devotedly and lovingly. In the end he stopped swallowing, and wasted away over a couple of months. One of the last cogent things that he said in my presence was to tell Glenys 'This is my son'. I think that he might have forgotten my name by this time. This was about three months before he died.
