    Saw your picture of Micky Munn as Colts Trainer and remembered him from the days when we worked at Warners Holiday Camp in the Isle of Wight in the 1960s. Does anyone know what happened to him?

    hi! funnily enough i was trying to find any pictures of my dad online to put in a fathers day card of his and came across your comment. He is retired now and currently lives in Wanstead, East London close to Loughton. Did you know him well?

      Hello Ben,
      Sorry I did not notice a reply button and I have posted a message instead.
      I do have a lovely photo of your Dad.
      Hopefully you do get in touch for my daughters sake as she has been looking for you for years.

    Hi Ben, I met your Dad on holiday about 7-8 years ago in Kos. I was holidaying with my wife before we had kids and spend many a night laughing at his catalogue of jokes. Even though that was the only time I met him, I still remember his name and remember what a big part of our holiday he was.

    He said if I was ever in Wanstead I should look him up (I think he mentioned a tapas place from memory). I live in Gidea Park now and always wish I had taken him up on the offer. I hope he is keeping well?
