Mother's Day Telegram 1972 - Chewton PA

Text Coming Soon!


In June 1970 my father Jeff Bales Sr., a U.S. Navy crypto tech, was assigned to the NSGA outpost at RAF Edzell in the highlands of Scotland. We spent the next four years residing in the small town of Edzell, located a few miles outside of the base. In May 1972 my mother MaryAnn (DeMarc) Bales sent this telegram to her mother Irene (LaPatka) DeMarc in Chewton. I believe it was later that year that my grandmother Irene and her brother Frank “Shorty” LoPatka came to Scotland to visit us for a few weeks. Thought someone might enjoy reading it. Full Size
