  • I found you! It’s really moving to see the pictures and enjoy them! I was there for about four months, when my father was learning, at The Havilland, about a new plane to be bought by Aerolíneas Argentinas, the Comet 4. We stayed at a beautiful sort of cottage and motel owned by Addie and John Forsythe, a lovely couple who made me feel as if I were their grandchild. It was about 1956 or 57, I was 9 or 10 years old. I believe they were Americans or Canadiens, I’m not sure. I still keep a book Addie bought for me when we left, with her loving words on it, and also some films my father made at Welwyn. I loved the woods sorrounding the village, I’ll never forget Welwyn! I hope to return some day, and visit amazing London and Sherwood Forest and B. Shaw’s house and all the beauty of your country.
