As a child in 1960/70's I lived next door to Eric Swinney's mother. A lovely, sweet lady in Darras Hall, Ponteland, Northumberland. Her cottage was on Woodside and called Geelong (a reference to Australian connection) since demolished. I remember a colour-tinted photo of Eric which hung pride of place in her cottage. I was and am still a great horse-lover. 'Nana Swinney' gave me a hunting crop which belonged to her son Eric which I have treasured, it has spent time in the USA when I lived there and now resides in our Farmhouse in Derbyshire . Wish I'd asked more about Eric and how she'd coped with loss. Have seen his name in the memorial books of St Clements in London. Bless him xx
