Here he is on a classic early seventies night out with my Mum.

And here is with with Auntie Famie and Uncle George.  He lodged with them when he came out of the Royal Air Force at the end of World War II, and we ended up living three doors away when I was a wean, in Temple Park Crescent.

Here’s me and my Dad, looking absolutely delighted to be on holiday, in all our dayglo glory. Probably about 1969.

Here’s my Dad, Alexander Walker Hamilton, in his RAF uniform, getting his picture taken at the Valette Studio, 32 Bank Street, Blackpool, on 2 May 1942.

Here he is with a young Mr H, outside our luxury holiday accomodation at Kinghorn, around about 1971.

And here’s my Dad as a young man, at the races, and looking very dapper, if I say so myself. Obviously my dashing good looks, and way with a hat came from his side of the family!
