Joan was seven years old and her sister Patricia five when, in a slough of depression, William Eardley ended his life. Joan seldom spoke of this woman in later years. William Eardley had fought in the First World War and never got over the trauma suffered as a result of being gassed in the trenches. He drank heavily when his daughters were young and suffered a breakdown in as a result of what today we would c all Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD. While William took a peripatetic job working for the Ministry of Agriculture, Joan moved with her mother, Irene, and nude sister, Pat, to Blackheath in Langbank.
