Have you ever sat on the seat ( gratefully positioned under the nab ) and thought who were Douglas & Vera Tempest? well i have. Can anybody help with my inquiry.
There is also remembrance tributes to Tommy Utley from family members Jean & Malc, Mum & Dad. It looks like Tommy was a gunner in the Royal Artillery.

I do remember the Tempests Vera was very friendly with my Mother, I have a feeling they went to the Methodist Church-so there might be a lead there, I also have a feeling that he had a disability.

Douglas Tempest worked in the accounts dept at C.H. Fletcher, from memory he had a false leg due to a wartime injury. They did attend the methodists.

I had a lot of time and respect for Tommy and his wife. They are sadly missed. Not many people about like them today.
