Me as a toddler, Father Christmas, unknown. Bit skinny for Santa, but those were lean times. Merry Christmas to Ron and all the regular contributers

Not sure he's quite that old Malc, but no doubt there'll be a sharp clip round the ear next time he sees you!

What a lovely photo, and how long it seems since children wore those reins for safety!

Dave wore those reins to protect his wallet - most would say he still wears them!

not Phil Eastham - definitely Mick Mullaney
