Happy World Book Day 2015 to you all I remember when my son was small, we would go to our local bookshop with him proudly holding his £1 voucher so he could choose a book.  Sadly he doesn't have so much time for reading now...

Introduction
Used to be Gillian Turnbull, born East London
Bragging rights
My granddad once sailed on a ship with Sir Ernest Shackleton in 1918 at the end of WW1. He saw the Northern Lights in Norway on the trip, wrote all about it and sent the letter back home to his wife. I appeared on Radio 4's Tracing Your Roots programme discussing this letter. Shackleton's biographer, Roland Huntford said it was a very important document and should be sent to the Imperial War Museum.
