Post Office - a Memory of Hamble-le-Rice.

My father was the post man in Hamble in the 20s. He was born 1913.Just before he died at the age of 90 I took him back to Hamble.He remembered most of the names of the people in the cottages ,he showed me the two trees that him and his mates used as goal post when he went to the school in School lane, they had grown a bit by then. He remembers the Hookers bakery , and he was in the sea scouts. His name was REG VARE, he died 10 years ago , so I doubt if any of his mates are left
