VJ DAY 1945

Who are they all?

By Ian Townsend

I found this picture in my dad's old photo collection. The lady at the back is my Grandma Mrs Townsend of Chapel Street. She bought up 7 kids in one of those old 2 bed houses! The picture was marked up as VJ day - I assume it was taken in 1945 - and appears to be outside the old Church Hall. Does any one know the kids there ? they would be retired now!

Just found this very interesting site. I used to live in Sussex Place in the '40s and I have the same photo in my family album. My mother has marked our photo and I am third boy from the left, front row, with the tie on!

Welcome Derek and thanks for the information on the photo.
