Feenan Highway - a Memory of Tilbury.
My father James (Jim) Staples was born in 1925 and grew up on Feenan Highway Tilbury. (He died in 1998.)
He fought in the Second World War as a Royal Marine.
He emigrated to NZ in 1952. His siblings were Fred, Elsie, Ivy and Stan. Fred, Elsie and Stan are now deceased but Ivy is living in New Zealand.
I am very interested in this area of England and would love to hear from anyone who might remember my father or his family.
