After coming across photos in an album kept by my mother, I decided three of the photos would be my Veterans Day posting. Two Borreson brothers served in World War II and married English brides. This post recognizes them and their service to our country.
Odell and Nan (Anderson) were married September 4, 1943 in High Wycomb parish church, Bucks, England, while Odell was stationed in the country with the U. S. Air Force as a mechanic.
Edgar and Edna (Lovell) were married October 1, 1945 in Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire, England. Edgar also served in the U.S. Air Force as a mechanic. Below is a second photo of Edgar.
There has to be a story here with Edgar in a Scottish kilt. I don’t this means Edgar has Scottish ancestry! So I’m waiting for an answer from one of his children – plus memories from Odell’s and Edgar’s children about their fathers’ times in England.
