Those are fascinating, Starlight, thank you for sharing. The photo of the visitor boarding the submarine on the beachfront sent me on an internet search to find out more about it. Here's a link to more photos of it https://rarehistoricalphotos.com/u-118-submarine-ashore-hastings-1919/ I'd no idea that WWI U-boats were so enormous.
But, what does the brain matter....compared to the heart?

What a wonderful find, Starlight, these are great. It's a little scary, however, how old the 1950s and 60s pictures look, especially when I remember having holidays there at that time.

Great find, Starlight! (Good treasure trove for some fanfic background. :foyle5: )
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

Well that unexpected arrival certainly morphed from curiosity to dangerous liability in super quick time :-? - a latter day Trojan Horse!

Thanks for the article.
