Caerleon Net

Martin Richards (email: contacted us from his home in Sydney, Australia. Born and brought up at 4 Lodge Avenue (subsequently renamed Roman Way) he describes himself as a CAERLEONITE. He wrote:

"I thought you may be interested in a copy of a photo that hangs on the wall of my home office. It is a carnival float from circa 1955.

I can identify most of the people in the photo since we all came from the Lodge area.

TOP STANDING Left to Right
Peter Carpenter, Janet Wollan, John Wollan (brother to Janet), Geoff Perkins, Geoff Jamie, Ray Wollan, Brian Nixon,

Brian Richards (my next elder brother) Clive Anstee, Andrew Jones, me (Martin Richards) with air rifle, Tony Wollan (brother to Ray).

All the faces I remember clearly, just the ravages of time on my memory for recalling names. "

Thanks to Paul Davies, Joan Teague (nee Wollan), David Teague and John Wollan for helping with the names Martin had forgotten.
