UR­GENTLY seek­ing read­ers’ help for a lost pic­ture of her much-loved baby brother is Tr­isha Mad­di­son. Robert Wal­ter Her­bert Hewett, known as Bobby, was born in Novem­ber 1938 to Ruckinge shep­herd and vil­lage bell ringer Bert and his wife Lil­ian, but sadly died the fol­low­ing Good Fri­day in April 1939. The re­main­ing rel­a­tives do know that pro­fes­sional pho­to­graphs were taken fol­low­ing his birth as he was thought to be the win­ner of a bonny baby com­pe­ti­tion, and they are hop­ing some­one may have a copy. Mrs Mad­di­son said: “It would be won­der­ful if one of your read­ers had a copy of this pic­ture or knew where I might get one. Nei­ther of my sis­ters ever knew of such a photo but I do re­mem­ber see­ing it in my mother’s Bi­ble be­fore she died. “I do hope this will bring back some mem­o­ries from the dim and dis­tant past to your read­ers.” She can be con­tacted at 85 Ten­nyson Road, Daven­try, Northants NN11 9DH.
