I'm a member of the south east branch of the Liptrots. There's me, Paul, and my wife, Cathryn, and we live in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, just outside London. Then there is my brother, Christopher, his wife, Susan, their daughter, Helen, and her son, Aaron. They live in Chessington, near Kingston upon Thames, Surrey.
My father, James (deceased), met my mother, Kathleen (also deceased) before WWII in Birmingham -- he was then a professional boxer and was fighting in the city. They met at a dance and were probably attracted at first because they were both tall for the time (father was 6 ft)!
During the war, my father was posted to the south, first to Windsor Great Park, which housed tanks. Mother was then living in Feltham, Middlesex. My birth was because father had a bicycle --he used it to cycle to Feltham!
Christopher was born two-and-a-half years later. After the war, the family set up home in Hersham -- just three miles from where I now live.
I am the editor of a magazine (hence the email address) and Christopher is a sound technician. We didn't follow our father into boxing...
