      Bert Bailey my great grandad was born in Bidborough, he had 2 brothers Fred & Clifford and a sister Kitt, all the boys went to fight in the Boer War and all came back. Fred went on to fight in WW1 joining the Royal Flying Corp and also in the RAF for WW2.

      Bert went to work for Siemens after the Boer war in Woolwich and came to Stafford when they opened the "Dynamo" works in 1903, he had recently wed his wife who came from Lamberhurst and was called Rosa Exel before she married. He didn't fight in WW1 as he was in a reserved occupation. Bert and Rosa had two children George and Kathleen, Kath was my grandma (mother to my dad).

      I remember him as he didn't die till I was about 4 or 5, he was a funny chap with a west country type accent, I suppose nowadays if you hail from Bidborough you would sound typically southern but living all my life here in the midlands everybody in the home counties and surrounds sound southern to me
