    I only spent an afternoon in Greenwich as a tourist in 1999, but I feel that it's my ancestral home! My grandfather Edward Riddle was Master of the Nautical School, one of the Greenwich Royal Hospital Schools, from 1921 to 1962. According to the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association website there is a bust of him "in mausoleum in SE corner of grounds in front of former Devonport Nurses Home, now to be a conference centre and postgraduate hall of residence for University of Greenwich". I would very much like to have a photograph of this bust, and will gladly pay for it. Can anyone tell me how it can be done?

    Why oh why did I never search for this site before now? It has brought all the memories of my first encounter of speedway when my dad took me to Brooklands as a 12 year old,and I was totally hooked!
    After the Bombers we went to Crayford,then on to Hackney [Kestrels] and now Lakeside.Thanks for this site its great!

    Cannells? Sweet Shop, Station Road

    Does anyone remember this shop and who owned it? It was about 2 shops before Garfield Road, walking towards the gasworks. I remember it from the early 60s and was told that they were relations. The couple who ran it were quite elderly. Thanks
