Please help to support your local Society, thank you.
This teddy bear was won by Lisa Sargent in an online bid run by the Stanford-le-Hope Salvation Army for £150. The bear is wearing a poppy jumper knitted by one of the local people and Lisa has dedicated it to the local men and women that worked at the Kynoch munitions factory in Kynochtown during the Great War from 1914 to 1918.
Recently found, and with massive thanks to Huntley Film Archives. Actually footage of the CLR journey from Corringham station to Coryton and back again. Ironlatch Crossing is also seen. Recorded in 1948 by one of the many steam rail enthusiasts of their day. With special thanks to Huntley Film Archives. Check out their website here for more videos.
