Dick and Ted are identical twins. Ted is 20 minutes older, although he says he “can’t be sure”. They were born in 1922 and for most of their lives have lived in the village I grew up in. I have always known them. They still work as mechanics and my Dad takes his old Morris 8 to their garage, which is on a corner and tiny and full ofcuriosities.

They started their business after serving in the Second World War, albeit in different countries. They began by working on military vehicles and they still, along with Dick’s son, fix up old Second World War jeeps.

From their 20s through to their 80s, they worked out of the same garage.
