Dad was posted to Germany after the war. My mother came to join him after a time and my baby brother Sandy was born over there.
Following the end of his military service, dad left mum alone and travelled back to Scotland with me. This was because she was 7 months pregnant, and it would have been inadvisable for her to travel, but it must have been a hugely difficult time for her.
After giving birth to Sandy, mum travelled back to Scotland and was re-united with dad. Already quite a nervous person, she found the journey extremely trying and almost left the plane without my baby brother.
