Picture 21: My mother on, 2 gents unknown, lady and gent and next lady unknown, but the couple on the end are our dear friends George and Hilda Sharp, without their help Webb's couldn't have become a reality, they were an integral asset to us all, and dear friends who were our neighbours when our family returned to Dover after the war, we then lived on Salisbury Road. Hope this is helpful to your creation of Webb's. Sincerely, Julienne Ratcliif/Webster.
