VJ Day 1945

Celebrating V.J. Day (15th. August 1945) with a children's party at Great Ashfield Aerodrome, 8th, September 1945. Free ices were dispensed by Fred Wright who made them in what was later Lufkin's shop in New Road (now a private dwelling). There were no cones, so children collected their scoops in a cup.

L-R; Herbert Mulley (a son of Herbert Mulley, builder), Brian Frost, Sheila Knight, Two girls in front, probably evacuees, Mrs. Hessey (centre), Mrs. Sybil Baker (née Scase) carrying baby Lawrence, Mrs. Robinson, Fred Wright, Stanley King (boy in cap).
