This fascinating story, written by Tony Smith, describes the life of a Tipton family in the years before, during and after the Second World War. The family later ran several successful businesses and ended-up at Clarach, near Aberystwyth. I must thank Tony's sons, Gary and Nigel Smith for allowing it to be included here. I must also thank another of their relatives, Stephen Preston, for bringing it to my attention.
