  • Col. Fielder was indeed a keen horseman and kept his horses in stables where Pharma chemist’s mini mart & off licence in Furtherwick Road now stand. He rode with the Essex Hunt & my father would often join him riding one of the Col’s horses. I have a photogragh of my father on a horse outside the stables. My father is 1st on the left centre row.

  • My Dad, Fred Peck, is in back row in front of rightmost vertical white column. If anyone has a higher resolution version of this photograph I would be pleased to hear.
