Me at 19

Vic Coughtrey in 1962
I rarely saw Walter during this period, but he took this photo of me outside his sister Gwen's cottage near Waltham Abbey in 1962.  Unfortunately I have no photograph of myself with the long bushy beard I had the previous year, to the horror of my mother and grandmother.  Only a centimetre of it remains here!
