Have your say

George Milliner dropped me a line asking if anyone knows anything about a Samuel Fielder, a cutler of 321 Lake Road, Landport, Portsmouth.

George still has a set of table knives given to his parents on their wedding day in 1941. They have an oval with the firm’s name engraved in the centre.
