Just read a great account of The Sentimental Bloke that my father Edwin Ride appeared in the early 1960s. I am the daughter of the Canberra marriage.
From the Australian Woman’s Weekly - I am the baby bump!
Josie divorced Edwin due to the shocking publicity of the affair between my father and the leading lady. My mother refused to allow me to have any contact with him. I met him for the first time when I was 19 years old!
I went on to be a member of the Australian Federal police; the Australian Army Reserve and raised five children.
I’m in the process of looking for a publisher to help me publish a book.
