editorial image

THIS photo, also submitted by Elaine Smith, shows Horace Elliott being presented with a clock on the day he retired.

Mr Elliott was a postman for 23 years before he retired. The family used to live in Swingate, Kimberley.

Also in the photo are Marion Pickworth, Stan Bradley and Walter Pert.

Elaine said: “Postmen used to know more than the police years ago!

“Everyone knew my dad as well. He always went to the cricket and the local football.”

Mr Elliott worked a split shift, from 4.30am until lunch time, and then from 4pm until 7pm.
