Rosemary Wright wondered how many of the children at these tables recognise themselves.

It was the VE Day street party in Grange Close, off Grange Crescent, Gosport, in 1945.

Rosemary (nee Potter) is on the far side of the table towards the left hand side of the picture. She says she was about four, is wearing a white bonnet and is sitting in front of her mother, Lilian Potter, who is wearing a headscarf.
