The picture comes from Ronald Voysey, of Hawthorn Crescent, Cosham, who joined the staff in 1953.

Do readers recognise themselves or their relatives?

Ida Headey (nee Hillier), from Lee-on-the-Solent, wonders how many people remember this VE Day street party from 1945.

She is the girl at the front of the picture with her legs through the chair.

It was taken in Vernon Close, Gosport, with Whitworth Road in the far background.
