The photograph below was taken early in 1940 outside the old London Salvage Corps Station in Watling Street. The people pictured are a mixture of Salvage Corps, LFB (London Fire Brigade) and AFS (Auxilliary Fire Service). Stacey Simkins is second from the left.
(I can't believe that my dad was only 15 or 16 in this picture! I love his cheeky grin and that he's wearing his hat at such a jaunty angle!)
