I SUBMITTED my Christmas Memory which you so kindly printed about the Christmas morning when I, (aged about 9, now I'm 88), went with my mom to get a very large leg of pork cooked in the ovens at the bakers named Ezra Hadley's in High Street, Blackheath.
How lovely it was when I opened my Bugle today and there are two letters relating to my Christmas Memory.
We are like a big happy family - we Bugle readers. Unfortunately both the letters have an email address but I don't send emails.
Mrs K.P. Page mentioned her uncle's name as Joseph Pearson.
I wonder - was his daughter named Doris, who was secretary to Mr Lench (the nut and bolt manufacturers)?
If she is, I think Mr Pearson came to work in the office at the B.T.H. in Cakemore Road, where I also worked from leaving school at 14 years, when Hadley's closed. Doris would know me as Mary Skidmore (she was a real lady).
What would I do without my Bugle - roll on next Thursday I say.
It's worth every penny!
Thank you all again for the pleasure you give to us all!
