Marcelle Mouiller 2

Then, on a trip to Cannes in the autumn of 1927, he met a pretty, vivacious 23-year-old blonde, Marcelle Mouiller. She was one of five sisters from a Catholic family from Vichy in the Auvergne, and was 27 years younger than Frank. He was travelling back to Paris on le Train Bleu and she asked to be shown round prior to its departure. Wearing only a light blue summer dress over her swimming costume, she never got off the train. Their first child, Edward, known as Teddy, was born in a Paris clinic in November 1928. Frank and Marcelle married five years later when she was pregnant with my father, Jimmy, who was born on February 26, 1933.
