    • Dorothy Wright remembers her uncle Gerald (Charles Gerald) having a son named Peter. We have now established that the child was actually named Gerald Peter but was known as Peter.

      He was born on September 2nd 1925 at Hill Side, Ashingdon in Rochford RD. His father's occupation was Light Comedian.

      His daughter Carolyn wrote in 2006 "my dad had beautiful white blonde hair and amazing bright blue eyes when he was a baby but his hair got darker. His height was about five eight. I have a picture of him at my brothers wedding in the seventies, and my mum and dad met while working in Sainsburys in Goodmayes Essex just before the war. "

      Gerald & Doris divorced in 1968. He met Doris Tuck in the early 1970s and moved to Ashford with her and her daughter.
