Jacob Monkhouse/Jim Monkhouse/John Overend/Hugh Dawson. Where are they now?
I guess that Andrew in Oz will pick up on this enquiry. Seems a bit odd seeking information on Sutton residents from someone so far afield, but Andrew I'm sure will provide the answers. He seems to have a wealth of knowledge about 'Holme Bridgers'.

G'day Denis

Quite right old chap! I can chip with half the information requested. Jacob (my dad) decided to check out the ‘other side’ in July 2007. Jim is fit as a butcher’s dog and still living in Cowling with his first and only wife Joyce for what seems like hundreds of years now.

John Overend – don’t know him, we used to live next door to Percy Overend. Likewise with Hugh Dawson, fraid I’ll have to ask the audience or call a friend.

Having a bit of spare time in hospital, I was perusing Genes United /Keighlians and added a couple or so names to some team photos.

I had noted that David, but have you seen the picture of your big brother who features in the latest YPF photos? And by coincidence I have just been reading an article written by Allan Laycock in 1947 entitled 'Fishing in Winter' illustrated with a lovely woodcut/lino cut [I'm not sure which]. Do you share his artistic skills?

Hi Denis,
Yes I did see the photo, and I think he became engaged to Muriel Bottomly from Glusburn? also in the photo. I can't recall reading the article but do remember his lino cuts. If you can get a copy I would be most interested.
I passed GCE in Art but further than that? It did come in handy during my textile career ie design.
Do you ever get chance to get across to Gloucester to see him?

Hi Denis,
Just a bit of ''useless info''. In the YPF photos, the old memories clicked in again.I have funny memories of Keith Riddiough. We used to go down to the park tennis courts and congregate in the shelter to play and watch. Many a time Keith would come through and stop off. I remember him always eating a teacake and I'm sorry Keith, your facial features made it look as if you had no teeth when you took a bite of the teacake. ''useless''?
