NOW here's a Days of the Old School Yard to savour as we travel back nearly 70 years.
Reader Marjorie Beeley sent in this super shot of children from West Ham back in 1940.
She tells us: "It was, of course, a completely different time in our lives back then. The picture shows children from West Ham who were evacuees to Caldecott, Rutland, during the Second World War."
Caldecott is near Wellingborough in middle- England, between Leicester and Peterborough and not far from Corby.

Marjorie, who now lives in Gloucestershire, told us: "I would really love to know if anyone recognises themselves from the picture, which I have always treasured."
You can write to Marjorie c/o the Newham Recorder, 539 High Road, Ilford IG1 1UD, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass it on.
