George William Crackett (1916-1978)

My Dad, George Crackett, was born 100 years ago today in Amble, Northumberland. He was the eldest of the three children of George Crackett and Elleskann0017nor Turner (Nellie). He went to the Duke’s Grammar School in Alnwick and made the break away from our mining heritage when he took a clerical job in the offices of building contractors R. Carse & Sons Ltd. He married Margaret Jane Webb (Peggy) in 1942 and then served in India for 3 years during the war, leaving his young bride at home with her parents. On his return from India they bought a house in Central Avenue, Amble where they raised my brother and I. Dad continued to work for Carse in clerical and management positions for the rest of his working life. We lost him much too early, when he was just a little older than I am now.Dad
