Hi booki18 thanks for replying to my post, I sometimes miss barking too, although its not how it was, I found it more dirty and people more rude last time I was there (approx. 6 yrs ago now) certainly a lot of changes in the high street, I now live in Canada emigrated back in 76. once again thank you and best regards kevin edwards

Hi Kevin I lived at 119 Victoria Rd from 1962 until 1969(when I was 10) when my parents emigrated to Australia where I still live. I went to Northbury until 1969, and was a member of 8th Barking Cub pack. I've been back once in 2013, lots of memories. Karen would have not been far from us, though I can't remember her.
