This photograph shows my grandfather, Arthur James “AJ” Rose, as a member of the Quart Pot’s Dart and Social Club. It was taken in 1949. Mr. Rose is seated, second from the left.
The Rose’s (AJ, his wife Dorothy, and daughters Joan and Rosemary (“Mary”, my mother)) moved to Wickford from Hillingdon in 1940. They moved to Wickford at the suggestion of Dora Knapp who lived on Church End and worked in AJ’s office at the Air Ministry in London. The Rose’s lived at 6 Ilgars Road. When AJ retired in 1957, they moved to Westcliff-on-Sea.
My mother, Rosemary, married Hugh Peacock at St. Catherine’s in 1948. Hugh’s family, Clem and Dora Peacock, lived at “Rosemount” on Wick Beech Avenue. Colin Peacock was their oldest son.
Joan is still in Westcliff. My mother lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. My father passed away in 1973. Any information/memories regarding my family would be appreciated!
