    “Imagine my surprise seeing my mother in the above photo in The Citizen. She is second from the right in the ‘back row’. Her name: Joan Tredgett (later Medcroft). In this photo she is 19 or 20 years old. She was a Draughtswoman. She died in 2003. I would like to say she always spoke very fondly of her time with Jack Fielding who was very kind to her during difficult times.”
