Langold British Legion - a Memory of Langold.

By, this photo brings back memories. I lived at the then British Legion Club from 1951 to 1958 while my mother and father Jack and Mavis Harding were club steward and stewardess. I started school there in 1951 and it has great memories for me, it was a great time with Langold Lake nearby in its prime. I still think of my old school mates sometimes, and even though I was young I can still remember some of the old colliers that came into the club, and even old Jack who was the doorman there for many a year.

I think I remember you Brian.
