      Notes 


      • Memoirs of Ada Heath on Percy Brooks & Lucy May Wood.

        "I had a cousin called Lucy [Wood] she married Percy Brooks. They lived at Pannal Ash & had 3 boys. Lucy was a marvellous cook & had worked at many places in Harrogate, occasionally they wanted her back, so I went to look after things while she was out. I went several times & liked it the boys were lovely. Cedric went to school in Pannal about 2 miles away. I would take the other 2 Kenneth & Bob in the pram every other day to Harlow Hill for bread & a nice walk. Grannie Brooks lived in a cottage not far away & used to say what a bonny lass I was. I had to cook Percy's meal at night & Lucy would come home tired, but was glad of the extra money. Percy worked at Bachelors but time went on & he had to join the forces a sad day for Lucy but I went just the same. Then one day a telegram came, Percy had been wounded. Things were never the same again he had 13 operations on his leg."
