    Hi ,my dad worked for Camberwell Borough Council ,later Southwark ,from 1953 to his retirement in the 1970’s.

    Initially he was a caretaker on the Sydenham Hill estate ( opposite the recreation ground ).

    I’m sure he wasn’t a popular figure and won’t be remembered fondly . If anyone does remember him ,don’t worry about negative remarks – I’ll understand .

    He had his finger in many pies ,so someone might know him .

    He was short and bald and nearly always in bib and brace overalls ,sometimes the full overalls .The pocket of his overalls had the Camberwell Borough Council initials embroidered in red CBC. He used to tell us kids it stood for Curly Boy Childs .
    His name was Walter Childs .

    And I do miss him and wish he hadn’t died so soon after his retirement in his early 60’s .
