I was pleased to see the great photo of Keere St on the picture gallery... In 1946 I purchased from Jim Weir the Eastgate Street mechanic a lovely 1927 Morris Cowley two seater "Doctors Convertible', to try it out and having seen the middle iron post at the lower entrance to Keers St was missing....well why not have a go! The old girl took it in not only in 1st gear but also in 2nd. Backing down was a little hair raising. The cobble stones were wet and I'm not quite sure my present 2006 RR HSE could do any better.

Peter, Although I have never personally met you I do recall seeing you and Prue riding through the streets of Lewes when I was a lad. Now tell me was it your Mum & Dad and the Parrot Ha Ha than run the Volunteer Pub in Lewes.

Hi Observer.
Yes my Folks ran the Volunteer during the WW2 years and members of No3 and No4 Commando were billeted there, that gave me the groundwork of handling automatic weapons Bren's-Tommy Guns etc and fighting knives.
The Parrots were a bit naughty with the green one...."Bu...r of etc" and Missy drinking out of Beer glasses until she fell in! Quite a different Pub now though!
regards,
Peter.
