Spanning

the centuries

Sir: In response to Paul Christison Edwards (letter, 14 May), I can report that in 1937, when I was five, my father took me to meet an old lady on the eve of her hundredth birthday. "Little boy," he said, "remember, when you grow up, that you met someone whose father fought with Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar." Can anyone cap that?
