    When I was in navy a ship was on was doing West Indies Guardship and playing many cricket matches against local West Indian Island teams. We were playing Turks and Caicos Islands and we had "lost our equipment" somewhere enrout to the game so had to borrow there's. To my amazement most of their stuff came from Bourne Sports in Stoke. Small world

    My mother and her family lived in Salford, probably Devonshire Street area, from 1913, when they left Bangor Count Down, to 1936 when they moved to Blackpool. Their family name was Loughrey and she and her brothers attended St. Thomas’s RC Primary School. My mother’s memories were not particularly happy ones, the family was very, very poor. Items were often pawned. My grandmother would take my mother to a wealthy family’s house to be given second hand clothes. One of her brothers won cups for boxing. Does the name Loughrey strike a bell to anyone?

    Hi there. I vsited Hadleigh recently cos my father was William Hallett born in Castle Cottage in 1916. Rumour has it that were it not for the Salvation Army he might not have lived. Amazed to find SA still firmly there. Does anyone know where Castle cottage is or was? Could find nothing in old records so it may have been one of some cottages originally on the SA site and demolished. Was my grandmother Lucy Hallett there in the care of the SA? She was married to Leonard (Jim) Hallett but the baby was born at seven months after the wedding. Lucy's uncle was much involved in the Temperance movement in London - Lyn Bodger I think. Can anyone shed any more light on the above? Please em
