Clifford Came Marching Home - Hoorah!


Anna’s uncle Clifford Prance (1919 – 1992) returned home from the war in the 1940s.

His three nephews (Anna’s brothers) James, Julian, and Tommy were most likely proud of him. Who wouldn’t be? I know I was proud of my uncles who went to war and did all that shooting. I could aim pretty good with my cap gun, so I knew what it was like.

And I am sure Clifford’s parents were happy too, that he came back alive.

I had two several uncles who went off to The War. One, Uncle Charlie, got a medal 'cause he could speak German and convinced a German machine gun nest to give up. He brought home an Eisenhower jaclet. I had to wear an eye patch because of "Lazy eye". At the age of 16, with my eye patch and Uncle Charlie's jacket, I got into the strip tease show at the state fair.

Si,
I had an uncle on each side to fight at Normandy on D-Day, another uncle came back all messed up and never fully recuperated, and three Naval Uncles, one was at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941, and I think the other two were on ships, but nothing special - there may be some more that are slipping through my mind at the moment.
We used to attend the strip shows when we were young... but I don't remember if we just paid and went in... one time we did try it via "under the tent" way but pulled the canvas out of whack and got chased away.
