Additional information:
The Carrie Parks Salvation Army wedding photo was taken opposite 2 Seymour Road, Staple Hill. The Salvation Army Hall is on Staple Hill, High Street opposite Seymour Road.
Carrie, who died in February 1993, was one of the many `waifs and strays´ brought up by Lillian Maud (Formally England) Jenner (1879-1958). Carrie was brought up by the Jenner family from her mid-teens until she got married to a Mr Parks in 1933. She was a close friend of my grandmother (Florence Evaline Jenner 1901-1994; aka Eva), they were like sisters and Carrie use to read my grandmother's love letters.
My grandmother born 1901 was the oldest of eight children, Arthur Jenner (born 1920) and Kenneth (born 1924) being the youngest. When they were children their mother (Lillian Maud Jenner) was always involved in social work in the local community and used to take in waif and strays. She would say "Well that saved them from going to prison". The children, being use to this, didn't take much notice except Arthur who said that as the rest of his family were years older than him, except his brother Ken (Kenneth), that when all these waifs and strays kept coming and going he felt, being so much younger than everyone else, that he couldn't be part of the family and thought that he must be one of the waifs and strays.

Kenneth "Ken" Jenner
Kenneth JennerKenneth JennerKenneth (aka Ken) (born 25 Feb 1924, died 26 Oct 1944) was close to my mother (his niece, born April 1933) and when he visited her family home the two of them would play games together in the living room using the sofa as an imaginary boat.
I also have his discharge papers. He was discharged from the Royal Marines on the 26th November 1943 on the grounds that he was "Physically unfit for Royal Marine Service". His sister (my grandmother) and his niece (my mother) both told me that he was hit in the shoulder by a sniper while on active duty. He was then sent back to England to recover in hospital where he contracted TB and a year late, on 26th October 1944, died of TB. Ken's name is on the war memorial in Page Park , Staple Hill, Bristol.
