Joyce and Roy’s reception outside No. 9 on 1st July, 1944. Roy is stood to the right of Joyce, with Alan Galletly stood to the right of Roy. On the far right is Roy’s younger brother Cyril Leslie Wells ATC. In the front row, Maureen Snook, a daughter of a neighbor and to her right a rather young, but smart looking Michael (Mike) Wells.

After being contacted by Alan, about his uncle, another Alan (Galletly), I passed his details onto Mike, whose own uncle, Roy Wells was Alan’s Air Bomber……

I was so pleased to hear back from Mike the other night regarding the final identification of one of the attendees of Roy and Joyce’s wedding reception – Alan. Up until Alan’s contact, Mike had no idea who any of the airmen in the photograph were.

I never cease to be touched by the many connections that relatives of these boys are now making through the site and I hope it continues.
