#1 The Broderick-Pittards attended in the late 20’s early 30’s? Their mother Mrs. Boderick-Pittard was our neighbour for many years on Tarbock Road, until she went into an old persons facility. She was a delightful old lady, she looked like Miss Marples riding her bicycle down Tarbock Rd. with her shopping basket attached. I never could understand how she was so strong to lose both sons in WWII and stay rational. I remember Mike Sullivan ’telling me that one of them I think Robert, killed in Burma, was a captain of the Gurkha’s. Jeff Easthope
