Les Moore, dairyman of Handcross

Alfred Leslie Moore, but known by everyone as Les, played a prominent role in the village life of Handcross during the middle part of the last century.
He ran Devonshire Dairy in the High Street and a couple of his cream cartons can be seen on picture #1221.
He also served as a parish councillor for many years, and, according to local rumours, he was involved with a highly secret defence force, assembled in preparation of enemy invasion in the Second World War. (See picture #1285)
My father, Derick Gordon, was a keen photographer and took this photograph.

And a taxi service! I remember a time in the newsagents in Handcross when I couldn't afford a cheap sweet, 10p short I was, and Mr Moore coughed up. A lovely memory from the 1970s.
As a 5-8 year-old primary school kid I found him very polite and an intellectual.
Bless you Les Moore.
