Today i have added one of a very few pictures of my Grandad Tom as a boy,
he is travelling with his parents and brothers and sisters and cousins in their wooden caravan,My Grandad Tom was a Romany Gypsy,he is wearing the dark waistcoat, next to the boy in the white shirt.
He always wore one of those caps and handkerchiefs tied round his neck.
He told me hundreds of stories from his time as boy travelling round Kent ,fruit picking, hop picking and all the different things they did to get by,they had a hard but good life.
