    Hi Bert
    Thanks for the info, just wondering why the Bert? Nickname perhaps.

    Bert is usually short for Albert Vernon. I should know as my father was called such but abbreviated to Albie . The one main person in his life my mother however never called him by such name. She always called him by his middle name Vic short for Victor. I remember in Whitley Bay shortly after the war there used to be a newspaper vendor on the sidewalk known to us kids as Daft Albert , my mother used to say all the Alberts she knew were Daft as well . he was probably a war veteran. My cousin from North Shields she must have also spoken to him as well as people who had sailed with him he used his middle name of Tommy in preference. Cheers JS
    PS That is of course when they werent calling each other Duck or Hen, as said once before thought I was in a Farm Yard.

    My father was a Herbert but always called Bert for short.
    Uncle Albert also called Bert.

    He had a sister called Virginia, virge for short but not for long.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.
