  • Another blast from the past with the mention of Doris Farthing, who was our next door neighbour in Essex Road and subsequently went on to be the Akela of the Cub pack to which I belonged to.

    Doris later lived in Langdon Hills and kept in touch with our family for many years until after compulsory purchase of all the Essex Road properties we all headed off in various directions. My sister who still resides in Laindon may have more information on her whereabouts in the years after I left for Australia.
