Note on Husband: Edward Albert WITHY

Whilst George Withy (DOB 1924) was out walking with 'Uncle Ted' (Edward), he remarked that he seemed to be limping. He replied "I was born with one leg longer than the other!".

To this day, it is not known whether he meant this or if it was one of a series of unlikely answers to a question that he found to be boring or impertinent. As George came to know Ted better, he realised that he did not trade in anything but the truth, particularly in dealing with youngsters, and he has now happily settled for the first answer. He was the alto member of the Stranton chorister quartet for 70 years.
