My Early Years

A Memory of Braintree

I remember you, Paul Smith from Chapel Hill School and High School. I also remember you going to New Zealand. I see John Mews occasionally in the White Hart at Braintree having morning coffee so I shall ask him if he remembers you. John also worked at Crittalls all his life. Doug Kemp went into the RAF and when he retired he didn't come back to Braintree. Barry Wassell also moved away and sadly he died a few years ago.
