|From the notes of Alfred John Boon:
Bridget lived with her daughter Ann in Crescent Road, Plumstead.
She would visit each of her locally based children, who would each
give her a shilling a week. Her pension must have been small (did
she have an Army pension?) She died about 1920. I was there when
she died, and I can remember the death smell. I smelled it many
notes: Ann must have been Juliana.
Bridget would not have had an army pension.
