The photo below was taken at Rushbottom Lane Primary School in June 1953. I am the one dressed as a beefeater in the front row (I had just turned 3 at the time).
Clive Fabb and his Mum Rita are on the end, with Clive wearing the Union Jack Hat. They lived at 46 Church Road and I lived at 40. Rita is still alive and living with her daughter Wendy near Brentwood.
