Family Sitting Outside Cabin At Balerno c.1945

Family Sitting Outside Cabin At Balerno c.1945

About this memory

Robert and Jeanie Percy (née Louttit) on right. Neta Percy (sitting far left) with her neighbour Josephine.

There were white raspberries down by the river which Neta would go down to pick. One time her brother, David, thought he would give his sister a scare by jumping out at her, but he stood back onto a wasps nest, some of the wasps going up his trouser leg!
