This is a photograph of my Father and Grandfather, front centre is Cecil Barwell and next to him my Father Bryan Barwell, together with the men from our factory who made up the James Barwell Limited No 1 Platoon HQ Company of the 40th Warwickshire Battalion Home Guard. The business ran for 130 years on Great Hampton Street in Hockley. This photograph was taken outside their parade ground at Icknield Street School. We still live in Birmingham, and my children are 10th generation Brummies.
Cecil Barwell, Bryan Barwell and the men of the James Barwell Limited No 1 Platoon HQ Company of the 40th Warwickshire Battalion Home Guard, all named.

In this picture we are all family. As you can see we are a very multicultural family. All the younger girls are first cousins and the older ladies are sisters. Our Nanny was born in the Himalayas and was brought up in Assam where she met our Grandad. He was Irish and they married and came back to UK. But not Birmingham, Newcastle. They moved to Birmingham to work on coal mines around 20 years after. My father's dad was brought up in Jamaica. He is Chinese Jamaican and my Grandad owned Fenkys Pattys in Hockley. My Nanny Fay was Jamaican. So, me Sophia cara, I feel one of a kind when I need to tick the box about my nationality, there isn't a box for me..... so I call myself a cocktail full of love
