Re: Cain!

Yes, I remember it too. I think I still have the LP at home somewhere, and I recall that I even took some of the photos on the album cover. Craig Pruess and Visitor 2035 were the musicians. http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=5935. One track is already on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Flecker’s Banning of some Comics

I remember collecting beer mats in the mid-70s, would have been before I even started drinking beer. If you got lucky, the brewery sent a bar cloth as well, and once even a wine glass. I may even still have that lurking in a cupboard 50 years later.

Re: Pocket money, Nausea and more

I remember in the 1970s being able to buy a hot dog and a Mars Bar in the tuck shop for about 10p...

Re: Leave Days in Horsham

In the 1970s I tended to end up in Brighton, Worthing, or on the South Downs with my parents. My father did have a small car, not really up to getting home to Romford and back in a day, pre M25 and M23. We usually started with a picnic just behind the 1st XV pitch on Big Side.

Contact for that would be CHMuseum@christs-hospital.org.uk and they hold absolutely all the historic records. Good luck.

Re: Arthur Lockhart

And to think you found all that stuff out in spite of being in Azerbaijan. The wonders of the internet, eh? So, have you traced your own ancestors back to the days when they actually made nails for a living? Strangely enough, my background isn't so very far from the Lockhart family. In the 1840s on...

Found a bit more on Ancestry.com... In 1939 there's a document called England & Wales Register - it looks a lot like a census. This lists: Lockhart Wm P, correct DoB - Stockbroker's Clerk Lockhart Margaretta M, born 4 Feb 1903 - Unpaid domestic duties Lockhart Thelma M, born 11 July 1931 - at sc...

Re: Arthur Lockhart

On Ancestry.com there are two family trees showing William Patrick as born in 1900 in Botolphs (Parish of St Botolphs in the east end of London, not too far from Christ's Hospital at that time) and with parents Arthur William Lockhart (1851-1921) and Annie Webber (b.1865). He was baptised on 8 April...
