James Foster

Trinity Terrace

Denny Lalonde - This is me taken April 27th 1944. I was a Boy Scout in the 28th Epping Forest Troop and we met every thursday evening at seven pm In the Hall near the top of Russell Road. Our Scout Master was a Mr Griffin, we called him "Griff". He was a really nice man and good leader. He lived near the top of Palmerston Road.Not much else to tell except that in those days if was a bit scary heading home in the pitch dark from TOC- H at nine in the evening on a winter night. Especially during an Air Raid.
