Family Relationships.

'Eric came over to see me, dad, on his motor cycle. The first time he has been to see me dad here all this time! He came because his way from Dartmouth to London lay 3 1/2 miles away from Froxfield, otherwise, I am afraid, he would not have come.'

'The Friday before last we all went to dinner at Eric's new home (New Southgate); and the dad was there and Guy later. A family gathering and very pleasant. Eric & his boys showed me large pieces of the Zeppelin framework they picked up 2 1/2 miles from where the zep fell......Eric motored me to the site and I saw the shattered oak across where it fell and the burned hillside.' 

Information and excerpts taken from Charles' diaries (held by the Imperial War Museum).


'Aunt Carrie died last Sunday in hospital having being terribly ill and weighing only 4 stone. Poor uncle Eric is very feeble. Dad went up to Southgate yesterday to attend the cremation service. Eric couldn't go. Graham was there.' - Olive Enock's letter to Joan Enock - 11th April 1952.
