My father's first christian name was Clifford although he became affectionately known as Dave and I believe this started during his service. Dad (Dave) was born in Halesowen and suffered some ridicule for his Brummie accent while in service. His defence to this was to adopt a Welsh origin and he maintained this to the end of his days. His renditions of "Men of Harlech" had to be heard to be believed.
