The first son of Ernest Walter Aldis and Alice Henwood Earl, George Mafeking spent his working life on the railways and in the London fire service which was his great love. He was an early recruit to the Royal Flying Corps in World War 1, receiving an injury for which he was decorated. Mabel was the fifth of seven children born to Charles John Day and Emily Rebecca Morris. She spent all of her brief life in London, surviving World War 1 but dying towards the end of World War 2, an indirect victim of years of bombing, deprivation and stress.
