Remembering my mother Emma Zena Lossl. She would have been 108 today, April 17th 2019. She was photographed with my father, Charles Lossl, circa 1939. I love this picture; full of movement as they walk along. They make a handsome couple. The lady turning her head to smile as they pass by seems to agree.

My mother was a dress designer. She would have made her own outfit. My father was in the Royal Army Catering Corps. I am currently researching his WW2 career from his army records.
My mother’s WW2 story is more ambiguous. She once told me she worked for MI6, employed to translate German to English and for her technical drawing skills. Hers will be a challenging WW2 story to uncover.
This is me with my mum circa 1999. She was 88. Mum is always with me, RIP wonderful lady.
