Regarding the first picture above, the 'Alice?'  was my Aunt Alice, Alice Legge, and you are correct, it is Gladys Heathfield, my mum. She sadly passed away in December 2020, she would have enjoyed seeing her photo.

Sandy, I think you will find Alice Legge, nee Lock, was your grandaunt. She was my great grandaunt. Events leading up to her arrival to this world is an interesting story.
