Embarkation Leave - a Memory of Weston Rhyn.

Mrs Barrett, the Post Mistress at that time, gave me a 1947 farthing for luck when I joined the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers in June 1952. She said she had given one to village lads in WW2 and most of them came back, so look after it.
I went to Suez and came back and it is still on my key ring.
