He Was Monty's Double

Picture of Field Marshal Montgomery at 1940s weekend in the village of Haworth in Yorkshire.

I was over in the village of Haworth this afternoon for their 1940s weekend. The event is held in the village over a Saturday and Sunday early each summer and attracts thousands of visitors to the village in the Worth valley best known for its lasting association with the Bronte sisters.

Many of the visitors to Haworth over this weekend turn up in 1940s costume perhaps as members of the British army, navy or air force others as members of the forces of our allies and some as members of the German forces. Some prefer no uniform at all but dress in the fashion of that era with stockings, frocks and perhaps fur accessories.

I no longer wear any uniform but have one thing in common with the chap in the above photo, we both served in HM Forces. Just in case you could not guess he was at Haworth as Field Marshal Montgomery whose nickname was Monty.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
