two men have contributed many memories and images to the AHS website. Both born
in 1926, they attended South View School together before they lost touch with
each other. Sam joined the Home Guard and then went into the Navy, John joined
the Army and eventually settled in Salisbury. The pair recognised each other on
the website and were reunited.
John had recalled memories of watching magic lantern shows at home with his dad
and offered his slides to AHS, he came to Yeadon in person to hand them to Carlo
Harrison, they met in the Clothiers Arms for lunch and Sam joined them. It was a
memorable reunion as the two old pals had not seen each other for 74 years! In
spite of them both now being aged 88 years of age they recognised each other
John Denison on the left with Sam Kilburn on the right.
