  • Bob Dilworth, who lived at 20 Fanton Walk, who did his National Service as a Grenardier Guardsman, was one of the pall bearers at King George 6’s funeral. All the men were given medals. We saw the funeral at next door Cubberlys.

  • The photo with the van would be in Alderney Gardens, not Hengist Gardens.
