Hi Georgian/Harry
        I remember the fair at Becton Park well, it was there that i met my late wife in 1951,she was 16 and i was 17 we courted until 1952 then i was called up for the army, came out in 54, got engaged and got married in Sept. of that year and had 56 happy and wonderful years together,until she passed away.So Becton Fair will always have a special place in my heart.

Went to the fair as a boy, over on the Wanstead Flats. One of the 'try your skill' was darts and the busker said 'get three darts in the double and win a prize. So, I had a go, and what do you know, I DID IT!

But then the busker said, sorry mate they have to be all in the same double (an almost impossible task). Because I was a boy, I did not have much pull and never got my prize.

How about a column asking if old friends are still around?  Or if anyone knows them?

David, there already is just such a forum called "Looking for a lost Relative or Friend" from the main Home page. I would always advise caution though about giving too much detailed information about a person who is possibly still living on a public board.
