date unknown
Picture Added on 31 March 2007.


I do not recognise the photograph but 'Gunner' and Tom Mills were my Uncles. Brothers of Marjorie Mills, married to George Stoker from Sunderland. I have very very fond memories of holidays at 3 Gordon Place in Rye Harbour and Bill Head complaining about my heavy footsteps as I hurtled upstairs.

Was 'Gunner' also known as Arthur? My Mother had a cousin called Arthur I think at Rye Harbour?
