Re the photo of the nurses home - rather than erect a monument to the fallen of W.W.I, it was decided to put the funds to a more practical use and the nurses home was the result. The two memorial plaques, that can be seen on the wall either side of the main entrance, were moved to Memorial Park when the building was demolished.

The Quart Pot darts team. I can confirm the person sitting on the right of three is Harry Hall my grandfather. He was known apparently as Dead Eye Dick for what reason I am not sure. Harry was a plumber known as W H Hall & Son and he lived in Church End Lane. The business is still in existence now in the hands of my brother.

The farm photograph is in Church End Lane, just on the brow of the slight hill on the left hand side from Wantz corner going towards the church, before the right hand bend. Bungalows were built on the site in the late 1950s and early 60s.
