I like that, did you make that display rack (assuming that's what it's called)?

My great grandfather's watch with a picture of  my great grandmother on it.  I never knew him, but she was a fantastic lady.

Thats lovely Maets :)
I have my grandfathers solid silver and gold cigarette case which I too treasure as I never knew him either.
This is a pic of him during WW2 as an ARP.
