Appeal to find an old friend

editorial image

My husband, Joseph, was at Hobbs barracks in Lingfield, near East Grinstead, from 1952 to 1954.

He was very good friends of a man named Brian, who lived at 1 Lamb Street, West Hartlepool.

He mentions Brian often and has been trying to trace him.

Of course, with no surname it’s an impossibility.

Joseph will be 82 on Christmas Day.

Brian will be the same age, as it was National Service that brought them together.

Joseph lived at Clayton-le-Moors, Accrington, Lancashire when he was in the army.

I wonder if anyone can throw any light onto who lived at 1 Lamb St in Hartlepool 1952.

It would make his day if anyone can help us.

We can be contacted at the address below, or on 07783 166778.
