Hop Fields

Horsmonden - the end of my hop picking days.  I was born in east London 1939 and hop picking was four weeks in the country, camp fire cooking in the evening, a sing along and down to the Gun or the Town House on Saturday evening.  Then came 1960 and I was called up for National Service spending two years away.  
I have now retired and acquired a PC. I have found the internet to which I am
new to and found your site.  Lots of memories came flooding back and I can
find a use for some spare time.  Thank you for a new interest.
