Ernestine (Tina) James added (November 2016): "... Lovely to see this photo Our family left Lower Rd. Yorkley not long after this was taken on route to Australia but never made it because of the Suez problems. We settled in Barry South Wales where I still live with my husband Derek ... . As a family we try to get back to the "Forest" every year for picnic and take over one of the sites. My mum Grace was your local midwife and probably delivered most of the local children.My husband recognised me straight away in this photo".
