I come from a family that has two common themes. One being a strong military/navy theme which I have an interest in, but have no inclination to pursue (although I did pass officer selection to the Australian Military Academy – Duntroon). The other is in the pub and ale trade, and back in the day my great-great-grandparents were the publicans of the Shakespeare Inn in Bristol. Actually, my great-grandparents met in the pub and quite possible conceived my grandmother there. Not that this probably interest you that much!
