The home movie footage was originally shot by Mr R W Annand, a hero of World War II who received the Victoria Cross.


This particular Gentleman after serving with a great deal of distinction in WW2 then spent great a chunk of his working life post army  helping the unfortunate at the Finchale Training Centre. He was also a member of my golf club and the small garden at the 1st/18th hole is dedicated to him with a  plaque. His funeral took place in Durham Cathedral a few years ago and the place was packed.

I knew of people who attended the Finchale Training Centre and I believe Remploy was part of it. In the mists of distant memory the name of Mr Annand was known to someone in my family from Sacriston who was a driver/picker upper of the people who went there.
