Queens Silver Jubilee - Presentation of mugs

Here is a picture of me receiving a Jubilee mug in 1977 from the Chairman of the Parish Council, Roger Ray.
I've still got it!

I think my dad, Derick Gordon, took this.
I have one or two others of the local children receiving their mugs. I will try to look them out.

The man standing at the back without a hat is Mr Charlie Rye.
He was one of the three butchers we had in the village. His shop was where the only butcher is now.

Please Sir. Could I have some more?
Added by William Hussey on 13 April 2016
Further to Barbara's message above regarding Charlie Rye, my father went on to trade from that same shop.
When Bill Snelling retired, my father became the lone butcher in the village.
On my father's retirement he was the longest serving trader in the village at that time.

Jerry, do you remember Busses sausages?
My life long quest is to find the recipe.
They were heavenly. I used to take them home in a suitcase back to Dorset.

I have to say I don't remember Busses sausages. Was that a brand or a recipe?
My late brother and I made my father's homemade sausages and mince to earn a bit of pocket money and my brother went on to work in the shop for several years.
I remember many flavours but not Busses.

Busses were the brand, bought from Tulleys Stores.
They always looked on the grey side, but all our family went to stay at The Hyde with them in mind.
If you could replicate that flavour now you would be a millionaire. The quest continues!

I think we might have Busses sausages sometimes in our house. You wait for days for one and then three come along at once.

William, regarding Bass Sausages & Tulleys Stores. My sister, Sally Pugh (née Ray), was a part time assistant at Tulleys Stores in 1956, and served Bass sausages (spelt with an 'A', not a 'U'), and recalls that Mr Harold Tulley collected Bass sausages from a source in Crawley, manufactured by Yetmans.
Could the recipe for Bass sausages have been imported from the USA like many items in the 1950s? There is a company called 'Bass Farm Sausage Company' in North Carolina, USA still trading today, and for over 60 years. Their website has recipes and the history about Bass Sausages.
Hope this information is of some help.

Many, many thanks; this is fantastic news. I can now carry on in my quest. I will let you know of progress.
I remember going into Tulleys with my Gran, Mrs Richter.
There was a lady there who looked like the ditsy lady of the Carry On films.
Many thanks again.

After a long search for the sausages that were the best in the world, I am closing in.
My late Gran, Dorothy Richter of 4 Hyde Cottages, used to buy these from Tulley's in the early 1960s. Apparently they were made by Yetmans in Crawley. They come from a secret American recipe and the company still exists over there. If anyone has any information on these delicious sausages please let me know. Many many thanks
