My great Aunt Rose Stapleton was killed with her two young sons Edward and Frederick when a bomb hit their house on the corner of Pages Walk and Grange Road on 15th November 1940. This building must be named after her.

This is a photo of my granddad Charlie Voss sitting in Cookseys scrapyard in Pages Walk almost at the site of the bomb where his sister was killed.

Living in Guinness’s Building our flat overlooked this part of Harold Estate. Many a time I would dropped down from the big wall dividing the estates to get away from the caretaker of Guinness’s, George Horton,only to get globbered by Joe Stacey,caretaker of Harold Estate.Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire, still it was good fun. I wonder if the youngsters today know what climbing is all about. Silly me of course they do they Climb out of bed and lay on the Sofa. ;) :(

Hi BermondseyBoy, your memory has’nt failed you,the air raid shelter did end in Swan Mead. What about the tin shed which was there, climb up one side, slid down the other, great fun. If I remember right another wall we climb over, though we needed help, was opposite the tunnel under Harold Estate and you dropped down in between, I think Arundel and Chichester buildings though I could be wrong on the names of the buildings :?: ;)
