My Father wore this pinky ring for as long as I remember and upon his passing, my Mother wore it until her passing 18 yrs later. 14 years have since passed and it has never left my finger. We are one. (5 years and 999 days ago)

My late mother-in-law's sewing machine which she bought on 25th February, 1947, (see purchase receipt), just before her marriage to my late father-in-law in 1948. On this machine she sewed and mended the new and torn clothing of three generations of her family. We kept this old and rusty machine, and purchase receipt, in her memory. The face on the stamp was King George VI. (5 years and 1002 days ago)

These were in my childhood home, as we were growing up, my sister and I used to tell our dad,that we wanted to inherit them.
Luckily for me, when the sad time arrived, my sister no longer wanted them. (5 years and 1001 days ago)

My father had this item and since I was a boy (long time ago) I played with it and amused my friends with it. We are not exactly sure what it was. A replica of a torpedo, something that was dropped from planes onto boats? Leave it up to the imagination. I received it from the family because I played with it the most I suppose.
