These four young ladies are named as Mrs Green, Mabel Tester, Miss Cornelious and Miss Kent. The dog is not named.
Miss Mabel Tester (1890-1984), standing on the left, was then living with her family on the farm at Handcross Park. She went on to marry Henry “Harry” Field in 1915 and they ran the butchers shop opposite the Red Lion in Handcross for many years during the middle part of the last century.
No details of the other three ladies can be found.
The Large Version shows the reverse of the photograph which describes the picture thus “In support of troops marching to the station. Most shops did tableaux or decorations”.
Little did the troops realise what awful events they would experience.
