Ken calls for help to solve photo puz­zle

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A FOR­MER sol­dier wants to find out more about a pic­ture he thinks was taken in Macclesfield on VE Day.

The town has just cel­e­brated the 70th an­niver­sary of Victory in Europe Day - or VE Day - which marked the end of the Sec­ond World War and prompted cel­e­bra­tions around the coun­try.

Ken Sparkes, 87, was just 17 and had not long joined the Forces so was not in Macclesfield on VE Day.

A fam­ily friend has found a pic­ture which Ken thinks was taken 70 years ago, pos­si­bly taken on VE Day.

He thinks it was taken on May­field Av­enue, the Moss, but would like to find out more about the pic­ture.

Ken, who lives on Har­vest Road, Tyther­ing­ton with wife Bar­bara, recog­nises his dad Colin, sis­ter Con­nie and brother Gra­ham in the pic­ture.

Ken said: “There’s not many of us left now that will re­mem­ber VE Day but I’d love to hear from any­one who knows any­thing about this pic­ture.

“It’s got to be 70 years ago and it looks like they could be cel­e­brat­ing VE Day, but I’m not sure why the coach would be there in the pic­ture and would like to find out more.”
