THIS WEEK IN 1980: Parachute sergeant’s mum had premonition her son had died

Have your say

David Warren-Holland’s recent picture of the VE Day street party in Shelford Road, Milton, Portsmouth, rang happy bells for Kathleen Eneas (nee Almond).

She has a similar photograph in her collection because she is in the snap, almost hidden behind the girl in front of David (he’s the boy on the left with his arm raised).

Kathleen says: ‘My father, Arthur Almond, is at the very back under the flag, turning slightly to look at the baby. He was in the City Police Force.’
