Celestine remembered the day in her diary (Source: Red exercise book, June 1975)
“Born at Les Prevosts Farm on a Saturday morning; Yves, his father was getting ready to go and take the butter to market. He was pleased it was a son as we had 2 daughters before him. The grandmother also was happy, as she preferred boys to girls, in looks he was already on his father’s side of the family and of course that pleased the old lady. In fact she had a strong liking for Henri.”
Along with his brothers (Robert and Paul) and sisters (Denise and Renee) he was evacuated to England during WW2.
He returned to Guernsey and married Monica Alanna Ogier on 9 October 1954, at St Joseph’s Catholic church.
They had a daughter Anne.
