Pied Piper of Hadleigh

John Willson Musical Memories

By Robert Hallmann

I've forgotten the year, but being a keen photographer I got John together with some children in the glen south of Benfleet Road, opposite Shipwrights Drive, for a colourful photo session. One of the pictures made it onto the cover of a photography magazine. The tuba would have belonged to the Hadleigh Marching Militaire. My daughters seated left and third from left. Perhaps someone can put names to the others and a date to the picture? 

At the damp bottom of those woods we used to collect some rather tasty champion mushrooms.
