Jacqueline lives in Aberaeron in Ceredigion with her husband Leslie “married since 1982, 8 children between us, 24 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren – enough to loan out as extras!”

  • 2015 was 70th anniversary of the end of WWII and while people remember VE day in June, they often forget that VJ day was not until August 15th.
