"Here is my brother Billy Wilson,
aged 7, with a rather crafty-looking Santa in his
tartan outfit at Christmas 1954.
brother wearing Wardie Primary School uniform, but without the
tie (as usual). Either
Santa went to the school (unlikely), or perhaps it was taken on a special
school trip, or in one of the stores.
Is that 7/6d he's holding up? If my
brother actually got it (which I suppose he ought to have), that would
have been a nice little prezzie in those days.
Billy Wilson was known as Bill Wilson after he
left school. He died in 1994"
