I love looking at the photos, they're brilliant although I don't really recognise anybody. I remember the monkey bars in the park very well, hanging upside down! The photo with all the men in, what was the occasion? The man in front second left looks a bit like my Dad, John Simonds, the hairline and shape of face. Not sure.

Hello, the photo was taken at Eddie Berger's birthday party which was held in the big hanger (community centre). I think he was 30. Hes was emplyed as handyman in the hostel.

It's interesting mum, we've seen photo's of Dianne, (several) David (on the slide) Janet (again several) and even Nigel (on the slide). It was obviously a figment of our imaginiations that I was ever on the hostel. lol
